The food giant company Nestlé has accepted that more than half of its products are not healthy.
The company stated that 60 percent of its 2000 products do not meet a “recognized definition of health” and also said that “some of our categories and products will never be ‘healthy’ no matter how much we renovate”.
Nestlé, the maker of KitKats, Maggi noodles, and Nescafé, describes the 3.5-star threshold as a “recognized definition of health”.
Nestlé said it “is working on a company-wide project to update its pioneering nutrition and health strategy. We are looking at our entire portfolio across the different phases of people’s lives to ensure our products are helping meet their nutritional needs and supporting a balanced diet.
The revelations could put Nestlé under pressure as food watchdogs in Britain and around the world impose tighter restrictions on marketing.
