By the end of 2014, 98% of Nestlé’s portfolio of products for children met its Nutritional Foundation criteria for salt reduction and for sugar reduction, in both cases this is an increase of 2% from the previous year.
Nestlé committed to further salt and sugar reductions in products for children
In keeping with Nestlé’s commitment to achieve 100%, the remaining 2% have been identified and are undergoing the final stages before being launched.
The new figures are published this month in the “2014 Nestlé in society: Creating Shared Value summary report”.
The criteria are based on nutrition science and public health dietary recommendations, such as those of the World Health Organization (WHO), the Institute of Medicine and other global or local authorities. 15 of the 38 commitments in the report relate to nutrition, ranging from product reformulation to healthy hydration and the responsible marketing of breast milk substitutes.
