What is the benefit of Nutri-Score for consumers?
The main benefit of Nutri-Score is to help consumers make informed choices within a product category. For instance, consumers can easily compare the Nutri-Score, visible on the front of pack, of different breakfast cereals and opt for the one with the best score (e.g., 'B' instead of 'C').
How is the Nutri-Score rating calculated?
Nutri-Score gives a rating to the product based on a scientific algorithm. It takes into account positive ingredients, such as nuts, fruit, vegetables, fibers, proteins and olive, nut, and colza oils. 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 a product.
What is the link between Nutri-Score and product reformulation?
We have started our reformulation journey 20 years ago and have already made significant progress in improving our products. Nutri-Score now offers a clear standard that helps us move even faster. For instance, around 25% of the veggie segment within our Garden Gourmet portfolio has been improved based on Nutri-Score.
Where is Nestlé implementing Nutri-Score?
Nutri-Score is being implemented on brands from Nestlé's wholly-owned businesses in continental Europe, where permitted. Our breakfast cereals joint venture Cereal Partners Worldwide (CPW) is also implementing Nutri-Score on its product packaging in countries across continental Europe.
Will you only implement Nutri-Score on products with the best scoring?
No. The wider rollout of Nutri-Score will be done in a consistent way across Nestlé's wholly-owned businesses and CPW product packaging regardless of the score of the product. Our goal is to support consumers in making informed and transparent choices in line with their dietary needs.
