“The Nestlé food and drink empire, including San Pellegrino water and Stouffer’s frozen dinners, is built on a foundation of sugar. Butterfinger, Cookie Crisp, KitKat, and Oh Henry! are all Nestlé products. So are Drumstick sundae cones, Häagen-Dazs ice cream, and Nesquik chocolate milk. In 1988, Nestlé even bought the life-imitates-art candy brand that makes Laffy Taffy and Nerds: Willy Wonka.” So Nestlé would seem like an odd company to be looking for ways to turn food into medicine. From Bloomberg: Nestlé wants to sell you both sugary snacks and diabetes pills. I don’t see the big deal. The tech industry wants to sell you always-on access and meditation apps.
