Henri Nestlé (born in Germany in 1814) came to Switzerland in 1843. He concocted an acclaimed baby food formula and later developed a popular brand of condensed milk. He sold his company in 1875. His successors transformed the Nestlé company to the present giant. At the end of the 1980s retailers in Senegal purchased powdered milk in sacs of several kgs. The consumer got the product in smaller quantities of less than 50 grs packed in whatever recipient available.

Vitalait became a success after the Satrec company started to sell the product prepacked in aluminum in the popular (break-fast) quantity of 22.5 grs

Vous savez combien on est?
or
Do you know with how many we are?

Nactalia uses an interesting mix of old and new technology: a painted wall with a digital display. The counter clicks at the French birth-frequency (0.007Hz).

In 1997 issue 47 of FMT magazine features an article about this Nactalia birth-clock. The text comes with a picture of the same wall.

Notice the differences between our picture and the archive:

  • disappearance of the Gervais logo.
  • new small print at the bottom: estimation de la population française

Ovomaltine - Pour tous ceux qui ont besoin de forces.
or Ovomaltine - For everybody needing (muscle) power.

Ovomaltine (born in 1904) was developped by the Swiss Albert Wander. His father Georg started the company Wander SA in 1865. Read more about the history at en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ovomaltine.

The brand certainly took a risk with this poster. What if the reader linked the uselessness of Sisyphus' task to the product? Junior copywriters should read the old myths.
Sister Borel had a similar problem with the bad typecasting of a tree (normally considered the good one) impersonating the bad guy (illness).
The same design flaws still happen: would you expect any good from a internet service provider named Pandora ? (pandora.be registered in 1997)

Natural, Pure, Fresh
Pasteurized Toned Milk
Visakha Dairy

Toned milk was introduced in 1946 in Bombay by the Government Milk Scheme. More milk became available at about half the price, making milk affordable for more people.

Toned milk is produced by adding skim-milk powder and water to whole buffalo milk. The fat content is reduced to about 3% while the other solids are kept at the original level.

Notice the waves and the droplet with the udder.
