Nestlé's Open Innovation Platform Celebrates Two Years Of Creative Solutions

Nestlé has announced that [email protected]é, the Swiss-based food giant’s open innovation platform, is celebrating two years of 'innovative solutions' to challenges businesses face.

The platform has launched 12 projects over its two-year lifespan, receiving over 400 applications from start-ups.

[email protected]é is designed to tackle 'meaningful and challenging projects across sustainability, nutrition, health and wellness'.

One example is the 'Nespresso Sustainability Challenge’, which created an online platform so consumers can experience and join in on Nespresso’s global sustainability efforts and their impacts on social and environmental sustainability.

The most recent challenges from the group include the 'How do you measure wellness?’ campaign, which is looking for partners to define wellness and measure how one's mood, state of mind and enjoyment of life can be affected by the consumption and experience of food.

The second challenge, ‘Engaging patients for better skin health’, looks to develop innovative ways to promote acne treatments, encouraging people to stick to their course of treatment in order to see the actual benefits of the remedies.

Partnering With Start-Ups

Nestlé said that the goal of Henri at Nestlé is to ‘partner with the best and brightest start-ups and entrepreneurs to create innovative, high-potential solutions across Nestlé businesses’.

This, it adds, allows the company to ‘deliver on its purpose of enhancing quality of life and contributing to a healthier future’.

Nestlé recently announced its support for the UN’s LGBTI Standards of Conduct for Business, saying that, as a global and multicultural company, it is committed to promoting the inclusion of all communities into its workforce.
