Shared Value Creation
Shared Value Creation (CVC) is a key part of Nestlé's way of doing business. CVC's main focus is the creation of values for society and stakeholders. Nestlé Health Science already offers nutritional solutions designed to improve patients 'clinical outcomes, promote dietary disease management, and improve patients' quality of life. Nestlé Health Science is also committed to developing solutions that reduce health costs. The goal is to develop science-based nutritional solutions that help change the course of treatment of various health conditions.
The Nestlé Institute of Health Sciences - as well as Nestlé Health Science, was established in early 2011 - and is the research partner of Nestlé Health Science. The Institute provides the scientific basis for customized nutritional solutions that help strengthen health or modify the course of chronic diseases.
To build the scientific basis for nutrition science of the future, institute scientists conduct research in biology with integrated systems. Through bioinformatics for data integration it is possible to combine an unlimited range of scientific data from genomics and clinical studies in order to gain new insight into the underlying mechanisms of health and disease.
The Nestlé Nutrition Institute (NNI) interactively shares current science-based and educational information with health professionals, scientists, nutrition expert communities, and other stakeholders.
NNI offers a wide range of resources, including Medline - a series of indexed publications, academic scholarships, nutrition courses, continuing medical learning via e-learning, hands-on tools, science workshops and symposia. These materials can be accessed through the interactive website ( www.nestlenutrition-institute.org ).
All features, including a file with more than 3,000 publications and 400 online conferences, are available to the medical community at no cost.
By sharing science-centric information, NNI stimulates the concept of "science passes through better nutrition" and contributes to improving the quality of life of people around the world.
