Since being formed in January 2011, at the same time as the Nestlé Institute of Health Sciences, we have begun to assemble the businesses and people required to truly transform and expand the nature and role of nutrition beyond its existing boundaries.
We are proud of our current and always evolving nutritional solutions – which are already establishing disease specific nutrition as a key component of healthcare – but a new generation is within our grasp.
We are pioneering the development of a new industry between the traditional nutrition and pharma, founded upon science-based personalized nutritional solutions. Our focus is upon addressing not just acute medical conditions, but also increasingly prevalent chronic diseases. These are associated with immense human and financial costs, which present a major challenge to modern society.
Our raison d’être is to bring to the fore a range of game changing solutions that unleash the power of nutrition, that could help prevent and reduce the risk of disease onset, and better manage symptoms and side effects; new solutions that are backed by scientific evidence, attuned to personal genetic needs and, moreover, in step with people’s changing lifestyles and greater involvement in health decision-making: increasingly our solutions will be part of patient protocols and integrated into holistic programs of care, beginning with diagnostic and including drug therapies.
With this in mind, my message is simple: expect game changing innovation from Nestlé Health Science and continual enhancement of our portfolio of solutions. Together, we can transform lives and establish a new industry that combats the growing healthcare crisis.
We are a new business on a bold and meaningful mission and are ‘on the move’ as we strive to succeed.
