Increasingly, Nestlé is becoming the world’s leader in nutrition, health and wellness. From the start, nutrition has been at the core of our business. However, today we place far greater emphasis on it – and on health and wellness. Our Corporate Wellness Unit and the individual business units are driving forces in bringing Good Food, Good Life to all our consumers. 1415Nestlé. Good Food, Good Life We use four simple words to describe what we believe in and what we offer consumers around the world: “Good Food, Good Life“. Food and beverages play an increasingly important role in people’s lives – not only because of the enjoyment and social pleasure of eating together, but more and more in terms of personal health and nutrition. Although it’s important, nutrition is only one aspect of “Good Food, Good Life“. Consistent quality and safety, as well as value-for-money and convenience, all play a part. Above all, great taste is fundamental to our products and our consumers‘ appreciation of good food. Research & Development It’s the task of our Research & Development (R&D) to apply nutritional science and expertise to create products that combine great taste with nutritional benefits. We firmly believe that our research can make better food so that more and more people live a better life. Through continuous innovation of new products and renovation of existing products, Nestlé is creating and enhancing hundreds of Nestlé products, especially in terms of their nutritional benefits. The Nestlé Group invests around CHF 1.5 billion in R&D every year. It’s more than any other food company – both as ßßa percentage of sales and in absolute terms. 1 Nestlé Nido with Prebio promotes a healthy Equivalent to more than USD 1.2 billion. USD CHF 1.25 digestive system. 16Around 3,500 people from over 50 countries work in Nestlé’s worldwide network of 17 research, development and product testing centres. The Nestlé Research Center in Switzerland is our major think-tank. It’s a constant source of new ideas and scientific knowledge that feeds the pipeline for all Nestlé products. It covers over 100 different professional areas – including nutritional science, the life sciences, raw materials, ingredients and production processes. 17Nutrition: the core of the Nestlé business Nutrition has always been at the core of our business. Indeed, the Company was founded, back in 1866, on the launch of an innovative, nutritious baby food. Now, almost 150 years later, we live in a very different world. The global population has grown to over six billion. People are living longer. Living standards have improved. Life styles have changed. These, and other demographic factors, have had a considerable influence on Nestlé – both in terms of the products we make and the way we run our business. Nestlé today is at the forefront of providing consumers with food and beverage solutions that generate a long, healthy life. Priority on nutrition, health and wellness More than ever before, we are putting our priority on foods and beverages that contribute to nutrition, health and wellness – for everyone, and that includes babies, growing children, senior citizens and other people with special dietary needs. The Corporate Wellness Unit is responsible for driving the nutrition, health and wellness orientation across the whole of Nestlé – covering the entire portfolio of our products, all over the world. The Corporate Wellness Unit’s “Wellness in Action” strategy aims consistently to deliver better tasting, better-for-you nutritional products and solutions. We have a global network of Wellness Champions in all our business units and in every country. Their job is to facilitate, inspire, motivate and drive wellness initiatives. 18
