F8. Saturated Fat Reduction
26 October, 2013
Submitted: 30 March, 2015
Please list the saturated fat reduction activities undertaken over the past year and where possible provide data to indicate the scale of activity.
Some indicative examples are given here as a guide.
Example 1. Reformulation: this could be presented as a percentage of sales or as the number or percentage of products/menu items/stock keeping units that have been reformulated. It would also be helpful to indicate the scale of reduction achieved.
Example 2. Development of new lower saturated fat options: this could be presented as the number or percentage of new products/menu items/stock keeping units with a lower saturated fat level.
Example 3. Portion size control: this could be presented as the number or percentage of products/menu items/stock keeping units that have had a portion size reduction where the previous portion size is no longer on sale or where a new portion size has been introduced to the market.
Example 4. Changing the balance of your portfolio/menu: this could be presented as the number or percentage of products/menu items/stock keeping units that have been introduced or changed where this alters the proportion of lower and higher saturated fat products.
Example 5. Customer information/education: this could be presented in terms of circulate of print media or website downloads.
Example 6. Incentivising consumers to choose healthier options: this could include shifting the proportion of the company’s overall marketing to lower saturated fat products, appropriate merchandising and price promotions.
If you are also signed up to pledge F4. Calorie Reduction, activities that affect both calorie and saturated fat levels can be reflected in both annual updates. However, reporting must be tailored to the relevant outcome.
Please list the saturated fat reduction activities undertaken:
Nestle has a number of Global Nutrient Reduction Policies where we will further reduce saturates by at least 10% (avge) over 3 years (2014-2016) in products that do not meet Nestlé Nutritional Foundation (Nestlé Nutritional Profiling System) criteria for saturated fat content per portion. (http://www.nestle.com/asset-library/documents/library/documents/about_us/nestle-policy-saturated-fat.pdf)
Our UK achievements are as follows:
Reduced portion size of single serve confectionery products so that all contain no more than 250 calories per serve resulting in the removal of 196 tonnes of saturated fat from the portfolio in 2014. Inc. Kit Kat Chunky Peanut Butter, Drifter, Yorkie, Yorkie Raisin and Biscuit and Lion Extra Bite.
Expanded the 99 Calorie chocolate biscuit range with Aero White Biscuit, Toffee Crisp Choccy Road Biscuit, Blue Riband Coffee and Cream and Breakaway Chocolate Twist Shortcake. Aero White Biscuit contains 57% less saturated fat than Aero White Medium Bar. Toffee Crisp Choccy Road Biscuit contains 49% less saturated fat than Toffee Crisp Bar
Introduced prominent sharing messages, portion guidance and reclose on many multi serve products.
Renovated Smarties Ice Cream Cone reducing the size from 110 to 70ml, resulting in a 45% reduction in saturates.
Renovated Smarties Tray Bake Celebration Cake resulting in a 10% reduction in saturates.
In the on pack recipes for Maggi, Carnation, Herta and Nestle Professional, the fresh ingredients that we recommend in our serving suggestions are those with less saturated fat. We have also done this for consumer recipes on our websites e.g. use of light cheese, low fat yogurt, skinless chicken breast etc.
We always recommend semi-skimmed or skimmed milk for preparation of products and recipes (e.g. Nesquik; whiteners in beverage vending products)
