As the world's leading Nutrition, Health and Wellness Company, with total Group sales of $110 billion, we believe that the future of our Company lies in helping people eat a healthier diet. At Nestlé we continually research the topic of consumers' health and well-being to ensure we meet the evolving needs of our consumers.

Our Goals

Our Nutrition, Health and Wellness strategy, developed over 140 years ago, is based on our assessment that nutritional awareness and the desire for improved health and wellness will increasingly drive consumer choice. Using science-based solutions, we seek to improve quality of life through food and diet, contributing to the health and wellbeing of consumers, including those with specific nutritional needs. We also aim to generate greater awareness, knowledge and understanding among consumers through clear, responsible communication.

To help guide Nestlé strategy in nutrition, the Nestlé Nutrition Council – a council of internationally recognized experts, chaired by Executive Vice President Werner Bauer – meets regularly with Nestlé management to consider key topics in nutrition relevant to Nestlé's business interests.

Our Actions Globally

We invest in continuous development and improvement in the nutrition profile of products in all categories and in the strengthening of our recipe database management for finer nutrition analysis and tracking. We continue to reduce the salt, sugar, trans fatty acid, saturated fat and artificial colourings they contain, adding more nutritious ingredients and beneficial micronutrients, providing appropriate portion guidance, and making nutritious, high-quality food affordable and available to our consumers. We also ensure we sell and market infant formula responsibly, strictly following the World Health Organization (WHO) Code in developing countries. 

Our Actions in Canada

As part of our continuous mission to bring tasty and balanced diets within reach for Canadians, we have implemented a new nutrient profiling system.  Our new profiling system considers five nutrients recognized by the World Health Organization: sugar, saturated fat, sodium, fiber, and protein. By leveraging this system, we can maintain the progress we’ve made in improving the nutritional value of our products, without compromising the quality and taste consumers expect from Nestlé® Canada.

Our Performance Globally

We continue to innovate and renovate products for nutrition or health considerations, in line with our own profiling criteria and reduction policies, and extended nutrition-based labelling on our product packaging. We increased employee training on nutritional knowledge and improved training of infant formula marketing staff.
