His parents, devout Protestants, taught their children: to serve God, must not only pray, but also to work hard. These lessons Henry has learned very well - in the years of study the knowledge he derived not only from academic tomes, but from the practical work: while the young man learned the art of pharmacy, he was replaced by no less than four jobs. After graduation, 25-year-old Henri Nestlц? decided to settle in the Swiss town of Vevey. Here he found a job in a pharmacy.

Now Clementine could feel like a mother. All the children, whom she nursed and bottle feeds, created by her husband, Clц?mentine calling it as "our children". Kind of a happy wife with a baby in her arms prompted Henry to the idea to create a logo for their products - something reminiscent of motherhood, love, security. As a symbol of Nestle chose a graphic translation of his surname - a bird's nest.
Before his death in 1890, 76-year-old Henri Nestlц? could recall with satisfaction not only named their children.
