We do more food testing than any other entity in the world. In total, around 100 million analyses a year are carried out for Nestlé and we have 8,000 people working to assure quality and food safety in our products worldwide.
We have many stringent, inbuilt controls to guarantee safety, from raw material selection to processing and packaging.
In fact our approach to food safety has now evolved from looking for defects in finished products to trying to identify their root cause as early as possible in the supply chain, so that we can understand it and prevent it. As part of this new approach, we have developed an early warning system to help us pinpoint signals that may turn into issues.
