Weaning itself, and millions of customers, from sugar.

The more scientists study sugar, the more they discover how harmful it can be. Nestlé has cut added sugars across most of its portfolio, and plans to cut 5% more by 2020. It has also poured R&D money into changing sugar’s structure. By essentially creating a hollowed-out crystal, Nestlé thinks it can reduce the amount it uses in certain products (including chocolate) by up to 40%.
