We are delighted to share the great news that Nestlé Professional UK& I is the proud winner of the Sustainable use of Natural Resources award at the recent Footprint Awards 2022, which has recognised our sustainability commitments to the foodservice industry.
The Footprint Awards gives organisations the opportunity to show their customers and the foodservice industry the steps they have taken to contribute to the sustainability of the industry and planet.
Our success was achieved through our First Milk partnership, with the milk used in our Out of Home and Retail products coming from a cooperative of 80 farmers, with whom Nestlé has been working with since 2015 to implement a long term sustainability programme. These products include NESCAFÉ Gold frothy coffees and confectionery chocolate such as KITKAT and SMARTIES.
This is a crucial part of our UK supply chain, and we work closely with the cooperative on regenerative agriculture practices that protect and restore the natural resources such as soil, water and biodiversity.
It was a brilliant night for us, and we also scooped a runner-up recognition: Social Impact and Diversity for Nestlé and Nestlé Professional Inclusion & Belonging programmes – along with two shortlisted categories: Sustainability in Education for Nestlé Professional Toque D’Or competition, and Innovations in Packaging for the Nescafé & Go product. We were thrilled to be in the company of many other great winners and shortlisted organisations.
