Nestlé has been present in Cameroon since 1965. It, however, started local production in 1981 and, since then, has been playing a vital role in providing high-quality foods and beverages to families across the country. It also serves as a source of employment for several Cameroonians, both directly and indirectly.
To keep with its commitment to the planet, Nestlé Cameroun has, in line with Nestlé’s general commitment, engaged several activities towards promoting a cleaner and safer environment by promoting and practising recycling of plastic waste, planting of trees, alongside other initiatives that keep the planet healthy.
On its products, the company has maintained a tradition of providing for Cameroonian families, the essential and high quality needs of all in their diet, through the introduction and launching of several products that cater for the nutritional needs of the families that depend on it for balanced dieting.
