At Nestlé, we believe that every journey of goodness begins at home. Together, it’s possible to inspire each and every family to live healthier and happier lives.
In this endeavour, we have been providing nutritious, tasty and safe products to Sri Lankans for over 115 years, and all our products can be enjoyed as part of a balanced diet. We believe that the future of our company lies in helping Sri Lankans eat a healthier diet. We do this in three ways:
Improving the nutritional profile of our products - We regularly assess Sri Lankan nutritional needs, recent scientific evidence, dietary recommendations, local regulations and consumer trends, and strengthen the nutritional profile of our products accordingly. Through this, we enrich relevant products with vitamins and mineral, including the ones deficient in Sri Lankan diets, such as iron and vitamin A. In 2022 alone, we provided a total of 833 million servings of micronutrient enriched products to Sri Lankan consumers. We are also using more wholesome familiar ingredients in our products that are commonly used in Sri Lankan kitchens, such as milk, vegetables, spices, fruits and grains. At the same time, we are reducing sugar, salt and saturated fat in our products wherever possible.
Providing transparent nutritional information - We provide consumers with easy-to-understand, transparent information on pack about our ingredients, how our products are prepared, and recommended portions for a healthy diet. We want to make it easier for Sri Lankans to choose nourishing foods and beverages for a healthy lifestyle.
Educating consumers – Nutritional understanding is a key step to ensuring healthier diets. We have been working with the Sri Lankan government for decades to help millions of Sri Lankan children develop good eating habits, learn about a healthy diet and get more exercise. We also collaborate closely with expert medical staff and nutritionists to conduct virtual and on-ground programmes that educate Sri Lankan families on nutrition, health and fitness, and which offer free nutritional checks and advice.
We remain strongly committed to continue contributing to a healthier future, by developing products that are good for our consumers and their families.
