The festive season has arrived, and Nestlé NESPRAY Fortigrow wants to you spoil you and your family, especially your little ones because we all know how important it is for them to get the nutrients they need to nourish their growing minds.
Did you know there’s a vast percentage of school-age children (5 – 14 years old) in South Africa suffering from both macro and micro nutrient deficiencies?
Products such as NESTLÉ NESPRAY FORTIGROW milk with a unique blend of essential vitamins, minerals and macro nutrients, is vital to ensuring healthy growing minds.
According to Statistics SA, one in four children under the age of three in Gauteng‚ Free State, North West, KwaZulu-Natal and Western Cape suffer from malnutrition and, among many other disadvantages, will not be physically or mentally equipped to benefit from school.
Adedoja Ekeruche, Business Executive Officer – Dairy at NESTLÉ says they make sure they work with farmers and nutritional scientists to not only standardise the milk that goes into the NESPRAY full milk powder, but the milk powder itself, so every sip of every glass has the same nutritional value. A large part of that lies in supporting our farmers deliver to world-class standards and practices.
One of the farmers that supplies large amounts of milk to the NESTLÉ factory in Mossel Bay is George Kuyler of Skimmelkrans Farm. Kuyler and his family have had a relationship with NESTLÉ that has lasted more than 60 years. In that time, the partnership has resulted in NESTLÉ becoming an integral part in the development of Skimmelkrans into a world-class dairy farm, complete with a state-of-the-art rotary milking parlour.
“Sustainable development of dairy farming has not always been easy. Fluctuating prices and competition from overseas producers make dairy farming a difficult marketplace in which to successfully operate. To help mitigate these challenges, we have found working with NESTLÉ offers us a reliable market for our milk, while helping us grow our business in a sustainable way.” says George Kuyler.
“The majority of the cows’ diet is pasture based, as grass-based diets are known to provide better milk yields with higher milk fat levels. Growing children need protein to help them build and repair cells and body tissue.
Much care is taken to ensure that the cows being milked are free of any anti-biotics or hormones, further ensuring the superior quality of the milk. Apart from this, each of the 37 farm workers take care to maintain their daily routine to avoid unnecessary stress to the cows with any kind of changes or shifts in their daily lives, as a happy cow delivers better milk.” added Kuyler.
NESTLÉ is doing amazing things and I want you to read the beautiful storybook the brand put together for your little one.
