Try as we may to eat healthier, sometimes that sweet indulgence wins out over the wholesome alternative. It shouldn’t come as a surprise that when it comes to eating, people do make their own choices.
This, on the other hand, is a complete surprise- Nestlé, the largest multi-national food company in the world, admitted in an internal presentation that a large segment (more than 60%) of their products do not meet a recognized “definition of health”. The report was centered on the food and beverage products of the Swiss-based company, which represent about one-half total sales.
For context, Nestlé is 150 years old and has over 2,000 brands. It sold more than $80 billion worth of food in 185 countries in 2019, employs over 300,000 people and has 400+ factories around the world. Nescafe, Stouffer’s, Dreyer’s Ice cream, Carnation, Lean Cuisine, San Pellegrino, Häagen-Dazs, Purina, Gerber, and DiGiorno are just some of the Nestlé brands.
Here is an article describing the report presented to the top executives at the Swiss food giant. It is certainly worth reading!
