Nestle Pledges Ambitious Salt Reduction

11/05/2013

Nestle has pledged to accelerate the reduction of salt across all its food brands worldwide to support a World Health Organization salt target of no more than 5g of salt per person, per day, by 2025.

The decision will further reduce salt levels across Nestle’s hundreds of savory products including soups, noodles, recipe mixes, frozen and chilled meals and pizzas, in popular brands including Maggi, Stouffer’s, DiGiorno and Buitoni.


In addition, all culinary innovations launched will be specially formulated with an even lower level of sodium, the company said.

“We have made great strides in reducing the salt content of our food products in recent years and we want to build on that progress,” says Henri-Pierre Lenoble, Nutrition, Health and Wellness manager within Nestle Food. “Our goal is to offer consumers products that enable them to make practical, healthy nutritional choices, every day,” he adds.
