How we make an impact

Business benefits and positive social impact must be mutually reinforcing. This is the core of Creating Shared Value.

We believe that Creating Shared Value enables us to optimize value for our shareholders and have a long-term positive impact on all stakeholders connected to our business.

Consumers are demanding healthier, natural and more authentic food products and are shifting toward a plant-based diet… We can only meet the needs of this growing population through disruptive innovation. This is why at Nestlé we have adopted a multi-faceted approach to how we innovate.
