Nestlé supports EU efforts for better nutrition policy

The FINANCIAL -- Nestlé on June 21 supported the Dutch EU Presidency’s efforts to develop an EU-wide nutrition policy to motivate industry to invest in healthier products.

Luis Cantarell, Nestlé Executive Vice President for Europe, Middle East and North Africa, said: "Today, we have 28 different national solutions to the same problem. Replacing this by one strong, long-term EU policy framework will create a level playing field and encourage competition, to drive innovation in nutrition."

Mr Cantarell was speaking at an event to mark Nestlé’s 150th anniversary in Brussels, which drew more than 300 personalities from EU politics and civil society to discuss food, sustainability and the future of nutrition, as well as Nestlé’s commitments to society, according to Nestlé.
