About Us

Who we are

The Nestlé Nutrition Institute (NNI) is a non for profit association based in Vevey, Switzerland, that shares leading science-based information and education with healthcare professionals, scientists and nutrition communities and stakeholders in all parts of the world through various forms of interaction. The Institute was established in 1981 with the goal to foster “Science for Better Nutrition” to help enhance the quality of people’s lives all over the world.

The global leader in nutrition education

We are one of the world’s largest private publisher of nutritional information including the PubMed-listed Workshop Book series and Annales Nestlé. As well as acquiring information on a broad range of nutrition related topics, we also share information through the acclaimed scientific workshops and symposia we organize and host internationally. The aim of these events is to make its findings available worldwide and so presentations are also made available through online videos and publications. Access to this information is free, and over 200,000 people have chosen to sign up as NNI members.

We support the nutrition community

Education is an important part of our strategy to share knowledge and further global understanding of the impact of nutrition at every stage of life. Since 1981, we provide grants to support fellowships and scientific research awards for young clinicians and scientists across the globe with a particular focus on professionals working in the area of maternal and child health and nutrition. We also provide support for accredited continuing education programs for a wide range of healthcare professionals including doctors, nurses and dietitians.
