At Nestlé Canada, our vision is to help Canadians live happier and healthier lives. We do this by continuously creating innovative and superior products that meet the unique and changing needs of our consumers. Whether it’s developing products made without artificial colours or flavours, like new Popping Pops, or renovating existing products with new packaging like Smarties, Nestlé aims to create products that satisfy consumers’ appetites and offers convenience, nutrition and great taste that Canadians will love.
Each year, Nestlé Canada launches a number of new products. The selection of Nestlé products being showcased at the 2015 Grocery Innovations Canada Show are outlined below.
SMARTIES *Portion Control Packaging*
In 2015, in keeping with its global commitments to nutrition, health and wellness and its leadership in providing treats in a more permissible way, Nestlé Canada announced that its SMARTIES packaging was getting a refresh. The innovative packaging incorporated portion guidance indicators on its regular products and reduced the size of its seasonal products. The SMARTIES regular box is now uniquely physically divided into three compartments, with each compartment containing a single portion of 15 SMARTIES and 70 calories and 11g of sugar per 15g. The SMARTIES cello bag was redesigned into a recyclable canister with a custom lid that allows consumers to measure out a single portion of 15 SMARTIES. And seasonal products, which include all large, hollow SMARTIES figures, have been reduced to a single portion that consumers can feel good about giving during the various holiday seasons.
KIT KAT CHUNKY Double Caramel
Delighting consumers all over the world, KIT KAT is a favourite chocolate treat thanks to light wafers and delicious chocolate. KIT KAT CHUNKY has the same great KIT KAT taste with a BIGGER hit of chocolate and crisp wafer. The KIT KAT CHUNKY Double Caramel is a global launch from Nestlé and adds a SKU to the portfolio that addresses the number one consumer flavour inclusion, caramel.
