The batches affected have the following use by dates: 21/02, 22/02, 28/02, 29/02, 06/03, 07/03 13/03. No other batches or Ski Smooth Yogurt and Ski Mousse products are affected by this action.

Nestlé’s UK & Ireland LGBT+ Network has been shortlisted as a Top 10 Network Group in the 2020 British LGBT Awards, an annual celebration that shines a spotlight on the role models and organisations working tirelessly to better the needs of LGBT+ people across the nation.
Nestlé’s UK and Ireland LGBT+ Network was formed in 2016 and since then has grown into a network of over 220 members and allies. Co-Founder and Chair Emma Scott, who leads a team in Nestlé’s IT department, said of the nomination: “I’m so proud of how far the Nestlé UK and Ireland LGBT+ Network has come in such a short amount of time. What started as a conversation over a Nescafé with a colleague has grown into a highly influential and effective network. The hard work has been extremely rewarding, for example we have been able to offer vital support and advice for our LGBT+ colleagues, some of whom previously struggled to truly be themselves at work. Alongside our support network, we are committed to ensure Nestlé is one of the best places to work in the UK for people who identify as LGBT+. We are making great strides in this ambition, which has included joining the Stonewall UK Workplace Equality Index, reforming our HR policies around transitioning at work and making our parental leave policy gender neutral.”
The Nestlé LGBT+ Network, now in its fourth year, has brought together LGBT+ colleagues from across Nestlé’s UK and Irish sites and includes representation from offices, boutiques and production facilities. The network has organised participation at Pride events every summer for the last 4 years and in 2019 marched with hundreds of members and allies at York, Dublin and Brighton Prides. 2019 also saw the initiation of a Nestlé LGBT+ Allies Network, a group of colleagues dedicated to supporting LGBT+ colleagues and ensuring equality across the business.
The winner will be announced at the 2020 British LGBT Awards which takes place in London on Friday 29 May 2020. Dubbed the “Gay Oscars” by the press, previous guests include Stephen Fry and Ellie Goulding, Caitlyn Jenner, Sir Ian McKellen, Alan Carr, Paul O’Grady, Lorraine Kelly, Girls Aloud, Little Mix and Graham Norton.
Nestlé’s confectionery brands and its people have a starring role in a brand new Channel 5 series ‘The Hairy Bikers Chocolate Challenge.’
The show sees seven amateur chocolatiers compete through various skill rounds to win the ultimate prize: for their own chocolate bar to be commercially produced by Nestlé.
The five-part series takes a look at some of Nestlé’s best-loved confectionery brands and it features footage from our York and Halifax factories.
Cheryl Allen, Head of Insight, Sustainability and Nutrition, Health and Wellness was one of the judges on the series. She said: “This was a fantastic opportunity for us to showcase Nestlé’s confectionery brands and the expertise of its people. It was fascinating to see how the skills of the contestants developed throughout the show and I know that they valued the insights that Nestlé was able to offer them, as well as the opportunity to see some of our best-loved brands being made. I hope that everyone enjoys the show as much as we enjoyed taking part!”
The show will air on Wednesday 12 February at 21:00 on Channel 5.
Aero fans can now enjoy a new twist on their favourite bubbly chocolate, with the introduction of Aero Caramel.
Available as a 100g sharing bar, the caramel-flavoured milk chocolate is made with cocoa responsibly sourced under the Nestlé Cocoa Plan.
Amy Kendall, Assistant Brand Manager for Aero said: “Aero is renowned for its unique combination of chocolate and bubbles that melt effortlessly in your mouth, giving you a little uplifting moment. The science and technology behind Aero made it unique from the start – but we continually look for new ways to innovate and delight fans. We believe that Aero Caramel is a delicious new addition to the Aero family and we hope it will soon become another firm favourite.”
Aero Caramel is being made at Nestlé’s factory in York, which also produces KitKat, Milkybar and Polo as well as milk and peppermint Aero and Aero Bubbles. It goes on sale over the next few weeks in Asda, Co-Op, Tesco and Morrison’s stores, as well as wholesalers and the convenience channel. Aero Caramel is available as a 100g sharing bar only (RRP £1.00).
Aero was first launched in 1935 as a peppermint-flavoured chocolate bar and this was followed by the milk chocolate format in the 1970s. Aero Bubbles were introduced in 2005 and last year Nestlé introduced Aero Bliss, a new premium version of Aero which comes as indulgent boxed chocolates that are perfect for sharing.
To celebrate National Apprenticeship Week, we chatted to Alicia, a Commercial Apprentice, who sits in the Group Marketing Business Excellence department at Nestlé UK & Ireland.
During Alicia’s A-Level studies at college, she wasn’t sure on what she wanted to do. Rather than following the traditional route of applying to study a degree at university, which she feared could be a rushed decision and a costly mistake, she felt it would be sensible to spend some time experiencing the reality of the work place, where she’d be able to identify her individual skills set and consider career possibilities suitable for her. Alicia said:
“At the time this decision felt a little uncomfortable, as all my friends were applying to various universities to study for the next 3 years and I was about the enter the ‘unknown.’ However, on reflection, I can honestly say that not going straight to university was the best decision I have ever made. I have been fortunate enough to work in various industries over a few years to understand the world of work and what truly inspires me.”
New research suggests the UK’s favourite time for a snack at work is 11:50am1. The survey questioned 500 UK office workers and found seven out of 10 of us don’t make it through the morning without snacking. The research was commissioned by Nestlé Professional which is launching its new range of Nature’s Heart products which are a delicious way to get you through until lunch time.
Over two thirds of consumers in the workplace are currently being driven outside of work to buy snacks2. This is due to a lack of choice, wanting better quality, nicer taste or because they don’t find the type of snack they want at work1. The new range of Nature’s Heart aims to fill this gap with delicious, responsibly sourced snacks.
The range is entirely vegan and is naturally indulgent. It includes goldenberries, which are sweet and tangy, high in fibre, high in iron and source of potassium. Nature’s Heart fruits and trail mixes are a delicious morning snack, while the dark chocolate fruits and glazed nuts offer consumers a sweeter more indulgent choice for an afternoon treat.
