DELIVERING NUTRITIOUS, DELICIOUS PRODUCTS IN A SUSTAINABLE WAY
Müller UK & Ireland can make a major difference in people’s lives, helping them to make choices which contribute to a healthier lifestyle.
Dairy is a fantastic source of energy and nutrients including calcium, protein, vitamin B12 and iodine, as well as a good source of potassium and vitamin B5. This means that everytime a consumer chooses a Müller product, they’re contributing to a balanced diet as recommended by the British Nutrition Foundation.
But Müller is more than great taste and healthy living: it’s about doing good, too. We work hard to ensure our
brand really resonates with people, whether that’s by supporting local communities or empowering our employees and giving them good reason to be proud of the company they work for.
From milk and spreads to yogurt and drinks, and from everyday essentials to something a little more indulgent, our products are selected from shelves millions of times every year, giving us the important and impactful opportunity to inspire health and happiness in everyone.
THE EATWELL GUIDE
Use this guide to help get a balance of healthier and more sustainable food. It shows you how much of what you eat overall comes from each food group.
What’s so great about milk?
Milk is a fantastic source of nutrients, being a rich source of vitamins and minerals, and providing a significant proportion of the daily recommended amount of calcium, protein, Vitamin B12 and iodine, among other nutrients.
We understand that our consumers care about the nutritional contents of our products, and we therefore
offer a range of products to support consumer choice, with a range of fat contents in milk and low fat yogurts available.
In order to help reduce waste, we offer multiple pack sizes, supporting all households to access these nutritional benefits. Our Fresher for Longer milk also helps smaller households access good nutrition whilst reducing waste, as it’s filtered to last for longer when opened.
In 2015 we set up a Sugar Action Board across the Müller Yogurts & Desserts side of our business, with the aim of reviewing our portfolio of branded products and reformulating recipes to remove or reduce added sugar.
As a result, since 2015 we’ve reduced the added sugar per portion in our branded products:
- Crunch Corner – 19.6%
- Fruit Corner – 22.9%
- Müller Bliss – 7.4%
- Müller Rice – 7.1%
- Müllerlight - no added sugar (excl. chocolate flakes)
THE NATASHA FOUNDATION
In the UK, the number of people suffering from food allergies is rising. There has been a 615% increase in A&E admissions* with research suggesting one child in every classroom has a food allergy**.
Cows milk can be one of these allergens for some of these children and that is why we’ve signed up as a corporate partner of The Natasha Allergy Research Foundation.
The organisation is dedicated to funding allergy research to prevent, and treat food allergies, with the intention of eventually eradicating them completely.
We understand living with allergies can be incredibly stressful and difficult to manage, so we are now part of the long-term solution to support this incredible cause and #makeallergyhistory.
As a corporate partner, 100% of our donation goes towards medical research, with none of it spent on running costs. The charity is taking positive and practical steps in the battle against allergens. For more information please visit: The Natasha Allergy Research Foundation
