Nestlé Health Science is engaged in advancing the role of nutritional therapy to change the course of health for consumers, patients and its partners in healthcare. Nestlé Health Science operates in three business areas:
In Consumer Care we offer a range of nutritional solutions for general health concerns or specific health conditions following self-diagnosis or guidance from healthcare professionals. Through pharmacy channels, these nutritional solutions are directly accessible to consumers and available without a prescription. It’s a fast growing area as people are increasingly health aware, with access to the knowledge about nutritional needs related to healthy and active ageing.
Our Medical Nutrition range covers specific dietary needs of patients suffering from illnesses or specific disease states. We are addressing nutritional needs associated with a number of conditions, such as inborn errors of metabolism, food allergy, critically-ill, swallowing difficulties, cancer or obesity. Our Medical Nutrition products (food for special medial purposes, FSMP) are recommended by healthcare professional and used in hospitals, nursing homes, and in home care.
In Novel Therapeutic Nutrition we are investing in companies with a range of nutrient-based technology platforms aiming to bring forward clinically proven innovations in the areas of brain and gastrointestinal health. One investment is linked to the development microbiome therapeutics. These have the potential to address the underlying causes of many types of diseases by restoring the gut microbiota to a healthy state. This healthy state can be disrupted by different health conditions such as trauma or even drugs.
We are committed to be the company where nutrition becomes therapy.
