Nestlé & Anglo-Swiss Milk Company set up on Marine Square (1814)

Nestlé and the Anglo-Swiss Milk Company of Switzerland establish a trading agency in Trinidad and Tobago in Marine Square (now known as Independence Square), Port of Spain, to distribute Nestlé-manufactured products for which there is growing demand. Among the earliest products supplied are Nestlé Sweetened Condensed Milk and Nestlé chocolates, which become a great favourite with children and adults alike! Later on, Nestlé Lactogen and MILO are introduced.
