As the world's largest food and drink company we are dedicated to offering consumers healthy, tasty options and the knowledge they need to make informed choices and inspire them to lead healthier lives.

We are constantly looking at ways to improve our products by reducing salt, sugar and saturated fats. We are adding whole grains, vegetables and other plant-based ingredients to increase their nutritional profile. We are simplifying ingredients lists and sourcing them responsibly. And we are also making the information on packaging easier to understand and educating consumers about balanced portions.

At the same time, we want to maintain trust in the quality and taste of our products. We want to inspire consumers to lead healthier lives through more active lifestyles and improved nutrition.

2010
  • No artificial colours, sweeteners or preservatives in Nesquik Beverages

The same ethos applies to pet food. A complete and balanced diet, given in the right quantity, is fundamental to helping our pets to live the longest, happiest lives possible. We are constantly listening to feedback from pet owners, responding to their desire for foods with fewer artificial ingredients without compromising on quality or taste.

For example, the colourants in our products have always been perfectly safe but we recognise that just as people don't want colourants in their own food, they don't want them in their pet's food either. We have already achieved a commitment to completely remove artificial colourants from our main meal products by 2020 and by 2023, we will completely remove artificial colourants in snacks as well. With that in mind, our AdVENTuROS® Dog Snack brand was launched without colourants, artificial flavourings or artificial preservatives, with new products available on shelves from January 2021.

In March 2021 we also removed the remaining non-artificial colours from our Felix ranges.
