Focus on Nutrition

Several million pounds of food and beverages have been distributed to  food banks across Canada over the past 20 years as part of a long-term relationship between Nestlé in Canada and the food bank community.

Nestlé provides consumers with nutritious and enjoyable food, beverages, and other products that play an important part in every aspect of their lives.

Nestlé’s Nutritional Compass®, which appears on the back of many of our products, lists key nutritional benefits along with tips and nutritional facts to enable consumers to make informed choices.
