Being sustainable

nutrition Sustainable nutrition

What we eat not only impacts our health but also the health of the planet. So if you want to eat a sustainable diet, one that is healthy for you and the planet, what do you need to do?

This is where it gets tricky. There are no black and white answers as to what is good and what is bad. It depends on all sorts of stuff from where, when and how your food is produced and transported through to how much gets wasted at home and along the way.

What is very clear though is that there is a need for some changes. After all, if everyone lived (and ate) as we do in the UK, we would need at least three planets to support us. 

Given that we only have one available, that's a problem. Especially since the one that we have isn't in the best shape, what with all the significant global challenges going on.

We want to make sure we're doing everything we can to lower the impacts associated with making our products, whilst at the same time ensuring that they taste great and are healthy for you. Getting the right balance between impact and nutrition underpins our entire sustainability strategy.

We're currently working with a variety of external partners on current thinking regarding sustainable diets so there'll be plenty more to follow on this in 2012.
