We want to connect with more than 10 million people on the importance of eating a nutritious diet, adopting healthy lifestyles and maintaining a sense of wellbeing.”

According to Mrs. Freda Duplan, “Inspiring Ghanaians to lead a healthier lifestyle is at the core of our business as a Nutrition Health and Wellness Company. At Nestlé, we believe in sharing nutrition knowledge to highlight the use of local and familiar ingredients in cooking that will help contribute to the growth and wellbeing of individuals and families”.
