Under the Nutrition Support Program, Nestlé Pakistan regularly provides milk to approximately 20,000 children and underprivileged people who suffer from key micronutrient deficiencies in urban, semi-urban and rural areas. The initiative is geared to support school going children whose parents are unable to provide them with a serving of milk to fulfill their nutritional needs. These schools are selected after giving due consideration of the profile to ensure that the benefits of this program reach those who need it most, the outreach capacity of the company and availability of resources. The program also supports organizations working with destitute women as well as social welfare organizations for sports, culture and differently abled children.
Nestlé is committed to playing its role in helping to reduce micronutrient deficiencies globally, by fortifying products with essential micronutrients that combat the impact of such deficiencies on Pakistan’s population. In 2020, approximately 3 billion fortified servings were served across the country.
