Nutrition and Wellness
Building an effective system to address the double burden of malnutrition.
One nutritional issue faced globally is the “double burden of malnutrition,” the coexistence of overnutrition and undernutrition, which can occur in a country or region as well as in an individual. To help resolve this complex issue, the Ajinomoto Group will leverage its food industry expertise in synthesizing the functional benefits of amino acids with various technologies, while utilizing networks developed through other activities to strengthen Group-wide nutritional improvement.
Food and Nutrition Management
In July 2017, the Ajinomoto Group established the Group Shared Policy on Nutrition and the Nutrition Strategy Guideline based on the policy. These provide a foundation for the Group’s business activities to promote “health and well-being.” Since fiscal 2018, a cross-organizational task force headed by a Corporate Senior Vice President has been formulating a comprehensive nutrition strategy with specific commitments along with a system to ensure the strategy is effectively executed.
We plan to use our ANPS as a tool for reformulating existing products, developing new healthier products in the global product portfolio and developing healthier menus.
