Bringing together creative minds, ideas and experience is the optimum way to achieve results. That's why Nestlé is collaborating with other stakeholders on improving the food system.
Nestlé - collaboration and food system change
Nestlé is the largest food company in the world, and one of the largest in the UK. Our business, operations and products are embedded in every aspect of the global, regional and UK food systems. We also have unique insights into the food system trends and challenges for the future.
We are actively engaged, on the ground and with policy makers and civil society, on food-system issues ranging from climate change and food security through to the economics of the food chain and the future of retailing. We also have a wide range of successful collaborative initiatives already in place, and a unique network of valued partners, stakeholders and expert advisors.
You can find out more about our industry-leading programmes and commitments to support individuals, families and pets, planet and communities in the sustainability section of our website.
The main food system areas where Nestlé is actively engaged
From a Nestlé UK & Ireland perspective, environment, health and societal impact are three key areas where transformation within the UK food system is needed, and where we have prioritised our current activities. We are, of course, open to engaging and contributing to solutions in any area of the food system where we have expertise.
Some of the ways we're already collaborating and working with others:
In a company the size of Nestlé, we know there must be areas where we can do better. We also want to share some of the lessons learned from our experience over the decades, and from the things we’re already doing to move to a net zero, regenerative model and apply this thinking to other issues that the food industry is facing into.
Collaborating and sharing ideas with experts, people with lived experience, governments and organisations working for change is the best way we know to do this.
Collaboration is even more important as the food system changes, allowing us to act quickly and appropriately. This means responding to climate change, changing demographics, geopolitical situations or just changing consumer choices and tastes. Working with others will help produce better decisions and results.
