What are you doing to reduce salt in your products?
NESTLÉ has had a policy in place to reduce salt in our products since 2005.
Between 2005 and 2011, we reduced the salt used in our recipes by 12’500 tons.
We’ve committed to reducing sodium levels by an average of 10% between 2012 and 2015 focusing on foods that most contribute to dietary salt intake.
This decision was taken to help consumers achieve salt intakes corresponding to official international and national recommendations

What are you doing to reduce sugar in your products?
As part of our commitment to constantly improve the nutritional profile of our products, NESTLÉ has been reducing sugar in many products, especially children’s products, for years. Between 2000 and 2013 we reduced the amount of table sugar (a free sugar) in our products by 32%.
There is also more detail on how we do this in the NESTLÉ Policy on Sugars (pdf, 2 Mb).
Free sugars are defined by the WHO as “all monosaccharides and disaccharides added to foods by the manufacturer, cook or consumer, plus sugars naturally present in honey, syrup and fruit juices.” So for instance the sugar you would add to your tea, often called table sugar, is a free sugar.

What are you doing to reduce saturated fats in your products?
NESTLÉ has had a mandatory policy to monitor the level of saturated fat in all our food products, to not increase the level of certain saturated fatty acids above the current values, and to reduce levels wherever it is deemed necessary and feasible to do so since 2009. These reductions are ongoing.

What is NESTLÉ doing about obesity?
Obesity is a complex problem driven by multiple social, economic and environmental factors. If we are to tackle this major public health issue effectively we need a multi-sector response and we firmly believe industry has a vital role to play in this.
We were the first company to develop policies to reduce fat, sugar and salt in our products, and we continue to develop products that are both tastier and healthier.
We work to provide clear and information rich labeling and to restrict our marketing to children. We actively promote healthy lifestyles through education programs and communications. It is part of our policy, to work closely with national and international public health bodies to help reduce the incidence of obesity around the world. 

Why does NESTLÉ support breastfeeding?
We believe that breastfeeding is best for babies and support the World Health Organization’s recommendation calling for exclusive breastfeeding for the first six months of life, followed by continued breastfeeding along with the introduction of complementary foods as advised by a health care professional or health authority.
We include the wording ‘breastfeeding is best’ whenever and wherever possible and relevant, such as on infant formula packaging and in all communications. We also develop educational materials for health care professionals and parents on the benefits of breastfeeding. We also run campaigns and seminars on breastfeeding for the medical community in partnership with governments and medical institutions.
