Saturated fats and trans fats
Our commitment: Reduce saturated fats and remove trans fat originating from partially hydrogenated oils used as functional ingredients in our products
By 2016 – Zero foods and beverages will have trans fat originating from partially hydrogenated oils (PHOs) used as functional ingredients.
In 2014, we strengthened our longstanding policy on trans fat reductions and committed to removing trans fat originating from partially hydrogenated oils (PHO)s used as functional ingredients from all our food products. By the end of 2016, Nestlé is targeting to have zero foods or beverages containing trans fat originating from PHOs in functional ingredients.
We committed to reduce saturated fat content by an average of at least 10% from 2013 levels over a three year period (2014–2016) among food and beverages that do not already meet the NF criteria for saturated fat. Though we made progress in 2015, this is the most challenging part of our portfolio to reformulate. We have identified the foods and beverages that are not yet compliant and will continue renovating products to meet our commitment. However, this renovation work will go beyond 2016.
