Innovation, creativity, quality and trust... these are the driving forces that have been moving Nestlé forward throughout the world. The Middle East is no exception. In fact, from Syria to Yemen, from Iran to Palestine, Nestlé remains one of the most trusted brands in the region. And that in turn, is a testament to Nestlé Middle East's own brand of excellence. Today, as the number one Food, Beverage, Nutrition, Health & Wellness company in the world - and in the region - we continue to draw our strength from these guiding principles, providing our consumers in the Middle East with our world class brands, products and services.
