Micronutrient fortification

Our commitment: Address undernutrition through micronutrient fortification





Nestlé India is committed to reducing micronutrient deficiencies across India through fortification of our products. In 2016, Nestlé provided 53 billion servings of iron, 102 billion servings of iodine, 35 billion servings of vitamin A and 14 billion servings of zinc, globally. Our Popularly Positioned Products (PPPs) are fortified with micronutrients to counter under nutrition, especially among lower-income consumers.

As per the Access to Nutrition Index, 2016, Nestlé India is one of the only two companies (participating in the index) that base their product fortification strategy on country-wide market research and leads the rank when it comes to addressing micronutrient deficiencies through product fortification.

Through bio fortification, we endeavour to crop varieties naturally rich in micronutrients. In collaboration with HarvestPlus, we are exploring the availability of zinc-biofortified wheat in India.
