Survey shows firms like Nestlé helping empower consumers on health

Paul Bulcke, Nestlé CEO

Nestlé and other Board members of the Consumer Goods Forum (CGF) have announced the results of a global survey showing that industry efforts are helping to empower consumers to adopt healthier lifestyles.

The survey is the only global measurement of its kind in the industry. It is aimed at measuring progress CGF members are making in implementing health and wellness resolutions the CGF adopted in 2011. The resolutions identify specific areas for retailers and manufacturers to work together to support healthier diets and lifestyles for consumers.

“We understand the complexity of the health and wellness challenges facing communities across the globe and how no single solution or organisation can stimulate the adoption of healthier lifestyles, but we hope this report will help galvanise the industry into taking collective action for a positive change,” CGF Co-Chairs Paul Bulcke, Nestlé CEO and Dick Boer, Royal Ahold CEO said in a joint CGF statement.
