|Known for||Creator of milk chocolate|
When Peter came up with the process of making milk chocolate in 1857, he had a problem with removing the water from the milk, which caused mildew to form. It was not until he enlisted the cooperation of M. Henri Nestlé, then a baby-food manufacturer who had invented a milk-condensation process, that finally, in 1875, after seven years of effort, he was able to bring the product onto the market. Later, in 1879, the two men formed a partnership that organised the Nestlé Company, eventually one of the largest of Europe-based confection industries, into existence.
