Nestlé Health Science has announced the signing of a four-year partnership, as an official supplier, with Solar Impulse. Nestlé Health Science will provide science-based personalised nutrition for the Solar Impulse pilots during their round-the-world flight. This will be done in collaboration with the Nestlé Research Centre in Lausanne (Switzerland) whose scientists will assess the pilots’ individual nutritional needs and develop personalised dietary plans. The partnership will also take into consideration the specific environmental and living conditions in the cockpit.

In 2010, for the first time in history, Solar Impulse succeeded in flying day and night without fuel and demonstrated the huge potential of new technologies for saving energy and renewable forms of energy. In 2014, it aims to fly around the world only powered by solar energy.

Luis Cantarell, President and CEO of Nestlé Health Science said, “This partnership is a great fit as we have common ambitions that address major challenges to society. We are a pioneer in the making in the emerging field of personalised science-based nutritional solutions between food and Pharma. ”
