Nestlé Health Science to acquire functional hydration pioneer Nuun

June 2, 2021

Nestlé Health Science and Nuun, a leader in functional hydration, have entered into an agreement in which NHS will acquire Nuun.

The acquisition complements Nestlé Health Science's existing portfolio of active lifestyle nutrition brands with Nuun's range of clean, low-sugar and effervescent tablets and powders.

Nuun was founded in Seattle in 2004, pioneering the separation of electrolyte replacement from carbohydrates.

The company's low-sugar electrolyte tablet is said to have revolutionized the sports beverage market. It now has a broad range of effervescent tablets and powders containing additional minerals and vitamins for energy, relaxation and overall well-being.

The transaction is expected to close in the third quarter. Financial details are not being disclosed.

Nestlé Health Science is a globally managed business unit of Nestlé.
