Who are we?

As the world’s first museum devoted to food, the Alimentarium has been exploring the many aspects of the human diet for over 30 years and is now focusing on the people who produce, prepare and share food. Our multidisciplinary approach looks at the cultural, historical and scientific aspects of food. The Museum’s bold and novel programme has made it a leader on the topic.

Constituted by Nestlé Suisse SA and Nestlé SA in 1980, the Alimentarium is a legally registered foundation governed by statutes and a Board of Trustees in accordance with articles 80 et seq of the Swiss Civil Code and placed under the supervision of the Federal Supervisory Board for foundations.
