Understanding Food Labels

Making healthier choices for you and your family can be very confusing.

Our vision is to provide you with the relevant information to help you make healthier choices.

We believe that by providing transparent and easy to understand nutrition information on all our products, we can meet our vision. To help you make informed choices about your diet and to enjoy a more healthy and balanced life, Nestlé has developed an on-pack tool called the Nestlé Nutritional Compass.

Nestlé Nutritional Compass

The Nestlé Nutritional Compass can be found on almost all Nestlé products worldwide. It gives you at-a-glance information to help you make decisions.

The compass comprises four boxes:
