Renewing the world of coffee



Climate change is putting coffee-growing areas under pressure. Building on a decade of experience with the Nescafé Plan, Nestlé is accelerating work to help tackle climate change and address social and economic challenges within Nescafé supply chains.

In 2022, Nestlé's largest coffee brand and one of the world's favorite coffees outlined its extensive plan to invest over one billion Swiss francs to help make coffee farming more sustainable: the Nescafé Plan 2030. A central part of this is working with coffee farmers to help them transition to regenerative agriculture.

Planting the tree

Part of Nescafé's contribution to Nestlé's net zero emissions commitment involves helping coffee farmers plant more than 20 million trees across 8 countries by 2026.

We are moving to an integrated strategy, using regenerative agriculture to deliver emissions reduction, improved farmer income and better social conditions.

Marcelo Burity
Marcelo Burity Head of Green Coffee Development, Coffee SBU, United Kingdom

Regenerative agriculture is an approach to farming that aims to improve soil health and protect water resources and biodiversity. Healthier soils are more resilient to the impacts of climate change and can increase yields, helping improve farmers' incomes. As such, supporting farmers to make this transition can help reduce emissions from coffee farming while contributing to better farmer livelihoods and stronger communities.

Nescafé is committed to supporting farmers who take on the risks and costs associated with the move to regenerative agriculture, with priority for the seven countries where we source 90% of our coffee. Nescafé will provide farmers with training, technical assistance and high-yielding coffee plantlets. In Mexico, Côte d'Ivoire and Indonesia, Nescafé will pilot a financial support scheme to help farmers accelerate the transition to regenerative agriculture.

87% of Nescafé's coffee produced sustainably in 2022 (100% by 2025)

Purina Pro Plan Veterinary Diets HA Hydrolyzed was the first truly hypoallergenic dry diet for dogs with food allergies. Progressive science has led to Purina Pro Plan Veterinary Diets EL Elemental - our most advanced formula for dogs with food sensitivities to date.

Purina Pro Plan Veterinary Diets EL Elemental is formulated with purified amino acids to support dermatological and gastrointestinal health in dogs with adverse food reactions. It contains low-allergen carbohydrate sources to help minimize the risk of an allergic reaction. It is also highly digestible to promote optimal nutrient absorption and has limited fat to aid digestion for dogs with compromised gastrointestinal tracts. The formula contains omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, vitamin A and zinc to maintain and protect the skin barrier, and prebiotic fiber to help nourish the gastrointestinal tract. Great taste ensures adequate nutrition intake.

Supporting Operation Fly Formula


Mother playing with her daughter

Nestlé is committed to helping parents and caregivers get the infant formula they need so their children can thrive. We were pleased to work with the US government to address the formula shortage as part of Operation Fly Formula.

In the spring of 2022, the United States experienced a severe infant formula shortage following a recall of another manufacturer's products. Nestlé teams from around the globe mobilized all resources to help address the crisis through its Nestlé Health Science and Nutrition businesses.

42 million+ equivalent 8-ounce bottles sent under Operation Fly Formula

The logistics of moving so much product in such a short timeframe were complex. Our teams across Europe and the United States pulled together to make it happen.

Olivier Gléron
Olivier Gléron Head of Supply Chain, Nestlé Health Science, Switzerland

Although a small player in the US infant formula market, Nestlé realized early on this could become a national health crisis for families and took immediate action, even as details of supply chain issues were still unfolding. Nestlé teams in Switzerland, Germany, the Netherlands, Mexico and the United States accelerated production of formulas, including those that serve a critical medical purpose.

During a time when infant formula out-of-stock rates hit as high as 70%, Nestlé was the first partner to participate in Operation Fly Formula. The first two flights in May 2022 flew 500 000 bottle equivalents of Nestlé Health Science's Alfamino Infant and Alfamino Junior and a million bottle equivalents of Gerber Good Start Extensive HA - all for babies with cow's milk protein allergies. This was followed by many more shipments of specialized and non-specialized Nestlé infant formula, including NAN Supreme pro and Gerber Gentle.

Addressing iron deficiency


Children running at school

In Pakistan, where one out of two children is deficient in iron, Nestlé has brought a breakthrough solution to market with Bunyad Iron+. The affordable dairy-based drink is fortified with a new source of iron that is more suitable for dairy products, as well as three times more absorbed in the body compared to existing available sources.

Access to affordable nutrition is a global challenge affecting many people around the world, especially in emerging countries. Many people suffer from micronutrient deficiencies, particularly children and pregnant women. To help address this challenge, Nestlé is accelerating its efforts to develop more affordable nutrition products that contain essential vitamins and minerals.

Nestlé EveryDay poster

In April 2022, Nestlé East and Southern African Region (ESAR) launched Nestlé Everyday, an affordable dairy powder product aimed at supporting the whole family against micronutrient deficiencies.

Using our R&D expertise in dairy products, we optimized and improved the taste, stability, cost and other key parameters to bring Iron+ to the market.

Heike Steiling
Heike Steiling Head of Nestlé's R&D center for dairy, Switzerland

The unique and proprietary iron source is based on Ferri-Pro, a technology originally developed by Riddet Institute at Massey University in New Zealand - acquired by Nestlé in January 2019. After acquiring the technology, Nestlé R&D continued to work with Massey University to bring the new source of iron to the market. The result is Iron+.

The Nestlé Dairy teams in Pakistan and Switzerland, supported by the Nestlé R&D Center for Dairy in Konolfingen, Switzerland, successfully launched the innovative Iron+ in the affordable nutrition brand Bunyad in 2022. Two glasses of Bunyad Iron+ offer 60% of daily iron requirements, as well as providing calcium and vitamins A and C.

Growing globally by giving breaks

KitKat is attracting new consumers by appealing to local needs and tastes. Since the 1950s, the brand has invited people all around the world to, "Have a break, have a KitKat." With double-digit growth in 2022, more and more people worldwide are doing just that.

Over 5 billion KitKat bars were sold in 2022. For a brand launched more than 80 years ago, its continued relevance is due to strong brand building and distribution. Young adult consumers - in both developed and developing countries - are making it one of the fastest growing chocolate bars in the world.

Growth in India has been driven by the ability to hit key price points with the 1-, 2- and 4-finger bars. Alongside this has been a tireless commitment to increasing distribution of the products in small shops.

85+ countries with KitKat direct sales

My job is to make sure KitKat is available and visible in every store so that everybody can buy a KitKat whenever they want to take a break.

Easwar Sales, India

The impressive growth achieved in Asia is equally matched by a runaway success in Latin America. In Brazil, with KitKat Chocolatory stores and products as well as a partnership with the Rock in Rio music event, the brand is increasing its appeal to young adult consumers.

Equally important to growth are the efforts to remain relevant to chocolate consumers in markets where the brand has existed for many years. In the UK, the brand switched its 2-finger range to use recycled (and recyclable) plastic wrappers. Across Europe, the vegan KitKat V continued rollout in 2022. And in Australia and Canada, KitKat tablets are what people crave for a break.

Championing water stewardship



At Nestlé Waters, protection of water resources in terms of quantity and quality is at the heart of our sustainability strategy. This is crucial both for our operations and for the communities located in the watersheds where we operate. We are unwavering in our commitment and continued to make progress toward our goals in 2022.

For several years now, we have used the Alliance for Water Stewardship (AWS) Standard to structure our understanding and drive actions to support good water stewardship. Created by prominent conservation organizations and experts, adoption of the AWS Standard is helping us strengthen the collection and sharing of data on watersheds, engage with local stakeholders and communities, and analyze shared water challenges to design tailored action plans, including collective initiatives within the watershed.

With a commitment to certify all our sites by 2025, at the end of 2022, 21 of 47 sites have AWS certification

With Nestlé's global presence, we can learn from our many partners and contribute to solving the water challenges in locations near our operations.

Cédric Egger
Cédric Egger Head of Sustainability, Nestlé Waters, Switzerland

In 2021, Nestlé Waters expanded its efforts to include a commitment to lead the regeneration of local water cycles, to help create a positive water impact everywhere we operate. More than 100 projects will be implemented by 2025 across 47 sites with that objective.

At the end of 2022, 40 projects have already been identified or implemented. These projects are adjusted to local contexts and bring tailored benefits, including a drip irrigation program in the Pakistani city of Sheikhupura, restoration of water quality in Thailand's Khanom Chin canal and pond renaturation to protect amphibians close to Spain's Viladrau municipality.
