Tin, Nescafé

Contemporary Era, Europe

Nescafé was launched in Switzerland on 1st April 1938 and was such an instant success it was soon widely exported. At that time, the import of coffee extracts was forbidden in Great Britain, so a production line was set up there prior to the Second World War.
