Our nutrition strategy focuses on better products, better diets and better lives.
A long heritage of quality products
We have a long heritage in contributing positively to people’s diets. Our brands such as Knorr and Lipton have offered wholesome and great-tasting products for over 100 years.
We have set ambitious nutrition targets that are embedded into our business and R&D strategy.
In December 2018, the Board of Directors of Hindustan Unilever Limited (HUL) approved a scheme of amalgamation between HUL and GlaxoSmithKline Consumer Healthcare Limited (GSK CH India) subject to obtaining requisite approvals from statutory authorities and shareholders. GSK CH India is the market leader in the HFD category, with iconic brands such as Horlicks and Boost, and a product portfolio supported by strong nutritional claims. The merger will strengthen our product portfolio in the key strategic area of health and wellbeing.
We ensure our programme on nutrition responds to people’s concerns and is aligned with guidance from public health authorities, such as the WHO Global Action Plan for the Prevention of Non-Communicable Diseases 2013–20.
Our nutrition strategy encompasses:
- Better products: We continually improve the nutritional quality of our products while not compromising on taste. Our tea brands Brooke Bond Red Label and Lipton are tasty, healthy beverages that are refreshing and hydrating. Our children’s Edible Ice/Frozen Dessert products meet strict nutrition standards. We are also gradually reducing the sodium content of Knorr Soups and Kissan ketchup/sauces portfolio to meet the sodium benchmarks in line with Unilever’s Highest Nutrition standards.
- Better diets: Through our marketing communication, we encourage more nutritious cooking. We promote healthy recipes on the product pack and online. We have always supported and continue to lend our support to mothers in making delicious yet wholesome meals for their children.
- Better lives: Our campaigns encourage people to adopt more healthy diets and lifestyles, for instance, the Lipton Green Tea ‘Home to Home, The Facts of Fat’ campaign.
