What is Creating Shared Value?

To build a business capable of both delivering superior shareholder value and helping people improve their nutrition, health and wellness, Creating Shared Value is the approach we take to the business as a whole. In addition to nutrition, we focus on water, because water scarcity is a very serious issue in many parts of the world and water is quite simply the linchpin of food security. And we focus on rural development, because the overall well-being of farmers, rural communities, small entrepreneurs and suppliers is intrinsic to the long-term success of our business


Any business that focuses on the long term and follows sound business principles, creates value for society through its activities. Nestlé in Kenya has been doing this in Partnership with Heifer International through East Africa Dairy Development (EADD)

Healthy Kids Programme

Healthy Kids Programme

The large-scale and increasing global health and development burden posed by Non-Communicable Diseases is a concern to Nestlé. Solving this issue requires the involvement and cooperation of many parties including scientists, academia, consumers, health leaders, the food and beverage industry, with national and international authorities. We believe that getting regular physical activity and establishing healthy eating habits help children achieve and maintain a healthy body weight, which will enable them to be healthy adults
