With our diverse product portfolio, we consistently work towards developing high-quality and affordable nutritious foods and beverages that fulfil the taste preferences of Malaysians by leveraging on our broad knowledge base, nutrition expertise, and science & technology solutions.​

Our efforts include:

In line with our commitment to support good health and well-being, we consistently work to improve the nutritional content of our products, from our existing offerings to new product innovations.​

To ensure that our products meet our high nutritional standards, we utilise the Nestlé Nutritional Profiling System (NNPS), which outlines specific requirements pertaining to essential nutrients including calcium, protein, fibre and wholegrains, alongside other nutritional factors such as sugars, saturated fat sodium and energy content.

Our latest innovations include:

  • HARVEST GOURMET Plant-based Nuggets
  • MAGGI® Nutri-licious Aglio Olio and Tomato Delight
  • NESTLÉ OMEGA PLUS Dark Choc Powder
  • NESTLÉ GOLD Honey & Berries Flakes and NESTLÉ GOLD Honey & Banana Flakes

Improving nutrition through fibre-rich grains, vegetables, nuts or seeds

Vegetables, grains, pulses, nuts and seeds are important dietary sources of vitamins, minerals and dietary fibre. However, Malaysians from all walks of life continue to suffer from a lack of fibre and wholegrains.

To help close this gap, we aim to help increase the consumption of wholegrains and dietary fibre amongst consumers by prioritising wholegrains, fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds as key ingredients in some of our products.

Amongst these include:​

High fibre products

Address under-nutrition through micronutrient fortification

The 2022 Global Nutrition Report highlighted the nutrition consequences derived from the COVID-19 pandemic, with the lack of access to healthy and sustainable diets contributing to rising malnutrition issues worldwide.​

Reflecting this, a 2021 UNICEF report indicated increasingly worrying levels of malnutrition in Malaysia, with the percentage of children facing stunting and obesity increasing to 20.9% and 6.1% respectively, compared to 18.3% and 6.0% in 2012.​

According to the National Health and Morbidity Survey 2019, Malaysian adults also suffer from malnutrition, with approximately half of the Malaysian adult population being either overweight or obese. The survey further reported that 29.9% of women of reproductive age (15-49 face iron deficiency, which can result in health conditions such as anaemia.​

Understanding the important role of micronutrients in addressing under-nutrition among both Malaysian children and adults, we fortify our products with essential micronutrients.​

In 2022, we provided our consumers with 3.5 billion servings of micronutrient fortified products. 100% of our MILO and milk products as well as breakfast cereals are fortified with important micronutrients. ​

Some examples include:

Malaysia’s Healthier Choice Logo

Malaysia's Healthier Choice Logo (HCL) is a voluntary initiative by the Ministry of Health to assist consumers make informed food choices simply by referring to the label on the front-of-pack. The HCL guidelines outline category-specific nutrient requirements on sugar, sodium, fat, fibre and calcium content, among others.

As of December 2022, a total of 40 Nestlé Malaysia products are HCL-certified. Having attained HCL certification for 33% of our products, Nestlé Malaysia continues to offer the largest HCL-certified product portfolio within relevant categories in Malaysia.

A line up of several HCL-certified Nestlé products

Over the years, Nestlé has played a proactive role in supporting consumers to pursue healthier diets. One of the ways in which we do this is through our voluntary Nestlé Portion Guidance initiative, where we encourage age-appropriate portion sizes, especially for energy-dense food and beverage products.

Nestlé Portion Guidance equips consumers with clear information on-pack about appropriate portion sizes and the nutritional value of our products. These guidelines are aligned with the recommendation of the World Health Organization as well as scientists, policymakers and health practitioners, along with other national food guides.

We are committed to ensuring transparency on nutritional content and ingredients for all our products to help people make better, more informed choices. We also provide intuitive and useful information to educate consumers. In addition, our product labelling also includes Guideline Daily Amount based labels on the front of pack which outlines energy content of a typical serving.
