Nutrition, health and wellness

We know people love the taste and enjoyment our products bring.

But we also recognise our responsibility to help people make healthier choices. We’re committed to making a positive difference to the health of our consumers by improving the nutritional value of our products using the Nestlé Nutritional Profiling System, marketing them responsibly, and providing clear nutritional information and guidance, in line with our pledges under the UK’s Public Health Responsibility Deal. Through our holistic employee wellness strategy, we also support our employees to lead healthier lifestyles, at work and throughout their everyday lives.


Nutritious food and balanced diets are essential for maintaining healthy lives.


By developing nutritious products and supporting healthy lifestyles, we meet demand and uphold the commitments we set ourselves as a business.
