Breakthroughs in genetics and the development of patient-centric healthcare make science-based personalized nutritional solutions possible. The surge of chronic disease, with huge economic and human costs, is fuelling demand for these solutions, creating a new market for targeted nutritional care. Announced in September 2010 and operational since January 2011, Nestlé Health Science and the Nestlé Institute of Health Sciences bring a competitively differentiating combination of capabilities and ambition, geared toward pioneering the development of science-based personalized nutritional solutions.
We aim to bring a new dimension to the nutrition, health and wellness strategy of the Nestlé Group of companies, by pioneering the development and application of evolving science to more clearly define the role that personalized nutrition can have in disease risk reduction and management. Our goal is to play a key role in stemming the rising tide of chronic disease in our increasingly aging, sedentary society, reducing the cost burden of chronic disease, and improving the quality of life for millions of people.
