The incidence of obesity and diabetes, and concerns about digestive health, are increasing rapidly. And yet, while obesity is now responsible for more deaths than hunger, one in nine people in the world struggle to find enough nutritious food to eat every day.
We have set ourselves three targets to support healthy living by 2025
Our expertise in sweetening, texture and fibre fortification provides consumers with healthier and tastier choices when they eat and drink. We help create products with fewer calories, sugar and fat, and with added fibre. We make nutritive sweeteners as well as stabiliser systems that allow food to travel over long distances. Our goal is not just to feed people, but to feed them well.
We also work to help people understand the role that diet, physical exercise and mental wellbeing can have on their health. We invest in research, including clinical studies, on the nutritional benefits of our ingredients, and support many different health educational programmes across the world.
