Across the world, Nestle is very well-known as being a candy giant, but the company owns brands far beyond that realm – and several of them. Some of the other several brands that Nestle owns are part of various industries like frozen foods, health-care products, pet products, and bottled water, among others. From the team at Wyoming LLC Attorney comes this new infographic that looks at everything owned by Nestle. Some of these may surprise you!

Many people know Nestle for their candy, but they own many different food and beverage brands, including but not limited to Gerber, Toll House, Coffee-Mate, Stouffer’s Hot Pockets, Tombstone Pizza, Buitoni Pizza, Lean Cuisine, and Stouffer’s. They also own several food brands that cater to your pets – these include brands like Purina, Fancy Feast, Tidy Cats, and Friskies.

Over the years, in building their massive portfolio of companies, Nestle has had several massive (and pricey) acquisitions over the years. The most expensive came in 2001 when Nestle acquired Ralston Purina for $10.3 billion. Other major acquisitions for Nestle include Gerber for $5.5 billion (2007), Altrium Innovations for $2.3 billion (2017), Freshly for $1.5 billion (2020), and Stouffer’s way back in 1973 for $105 million.

Nestle is also known for owning several notable baby brands as well, including Gerber, NaturNes, Cerelac, Ceregrow, Nestogen, and Nestum. Also, in various markets outside of the United States, these cereals are sold with the Nestle branding: Cocoa Puffs, Lucky Charms, Trix, Corn Flakes, Golden Grahams, Cookie Crisp, Shredded Wheat, Shreddies, and last but not least, Cheerios.

Nestle holds a significant interest in L’Oreal, the multinational cosmetics giant, and as of 2021, Nestlé’s ownership stake in L’Oreal was approximately 20%. L’Oreal also certainly boasts a portfolio of recognizable personal care brands, including Lancome, Garnier, Maybelline, Urban Decay, and Kiehl’s.
