Taking into account the broader interest in nutrition of health authorities, the various entities of the Nutriset Group aim to offer nutritional solutions to the most vulnerable populations, in order to be healthier and live better, thanks to and through nutrition.
In addition to its action to support the programs of international organizations, the Nutriset Group acts to support national health, nutrition and food policies, mainly in middle and low-income countries.
