The world’s population is a whopping 7.6 billion, and growing. That’s a lot of hungry mouths to feed. And with obesity becoming an expanding problem globally, it’s not enough to simply provide people with enough to eat, we also have to ensure we’re providing the right kind of nutritious food. That’s why we have maximum levels for saturated fat, sodium, trans fats and sugar. These are based on dietary guidelines, so we don’t overstep those maximum levels.
With a growing population comes growing health trends. So, we’ve grown too. From Knorr products fortified with vitamins, to vegan Hellman’s mayonnaise and non-dairy Ben & Jerry’s, we’ve kept pace with people’s taste. We’re also partnering with the European Vegetarian Union, ensuring around 500 of our products are veggie and vegan friendly.
Sustainably sourcing as many of our ingredients as possible is also key to ensuring you get the products you can’t do without (like that morning cup of tea) whilst also looking after the planet. Did you know that, since 2015, all the tea for our Lipton tea bags is made from 100% Rainforest Alliance Certified™ sources? And we’re working hard to make all our tea sustainably sourced by 2020.
So whichever of our tasty products you’re tucking into, rest assured that every bite, lick and sip doesn’t just taste good and feel good, it’s also a force for good.
