Gerber was first introduced to the world in 1927 by Daniel Frank Gerber. Gerber’s wife made baby food for their newborn daughter, which led him to start his own line of baby food that he could sell to the public. Gerber created five different baby foods to sell and it was an instant hit among the public
Gerber had been in American hands for over 70 years before it was sold to Switzerland-based company Nestle for $5.5 billion in 2007. This was just small money for Nestle as they knew that Gerber would be profitable in the long run.
