How is the Nutri-Score rating calculated?
Nutri-Score gives a rating to the product based on a scientific algorithm. It takes into account ingredients that are good for you and therefore to be encouraged, such as nuts, fruit, vegetables, fibers and proteins. It also takes into account ingredients to limit, such as sugars, energy (calories), sodium (salt) and saturated fat. Nutri-Score is based on 100gr or 100ml of product.
Where will Nestlé implement Nutri-Score?
Nutri-Score will be implemented on brands from Nestlé’s wholly-owned businesses in Austria, Belgium, France, Germany and Switzerland. Cereal Partners Worldwide (CPW) will also implement Nutri-Score on its product packaging in the same countries. Nestlé and CPW stand ready to roll out Nutri-Score in further countries upon their request or notification to the European Commission.
What is the timeline of implementation of Nutri-Score?
Nutri-Score will appear across a whole range of products and many iconic brands. This will include plant-based products from Garden Gourmet, Nesquik chocolate-flavored milk, Buitoni pizzas, Nescafé coffee, Maggi culinary products and KitKat chocolate. The first labels with Nutri-Score will appear in the first half of 2020. Over a two-year period, Nestlé will implement Nutri-Score labelling across its portfolio in continental Europe.
Will you only implement Nutri-Score on products with the best scoring?
No. The Nutri-Score implementation will be done in a consistent way across Nestlé's wholly-owned businesses and CPW product packaging regardless of the score of the product. It is a matter of transparency with consumers.
