Nestlé and Samsung to Collaborate on Digital Nutrition and Health

Nestlé and Samsung have announced a research collaboration to explore the potential of nutrition science and digital sensor technologies to provide new insights into healthy living. They are developing a new digital health platform to provide individuals with more personalised recommendations around nutrition, lifestyle and fitness than previously possible.

Their aim is to empower people to better manage their health and wellness using one simple, connected entity, rather than multiple platforms and devices. The initial work on the platform will be carried out by the Nestlé Institute of Health Sciences(NIHS), in Lausanne, Switzerland, and the Samsung Strategy and Innovation Centre (SSIC), headquartered in Silicon Valley, California.

The long-term goal of the collaboration is to combine ‘Internet of Things’ technology (the growing ability of devices in our lives to connect with each other) with breakthrough nutrition science, to provide people with greater ownership of their quality of life. More details about the platform are expected when the first pilots begin in early 2017.

Life-enriching Technology

“We are delighted to enter this collaboration with a global leader in the field of sensor technologies,” says Stefan Catsicas, Nestlé Chief Technology Officer. “It will advance our Nutrition, Health and Wellness strategy, to support people who want to live a healthier lifestyle.”

“Today, we live in an era where the data from sensors and devices in our daily lives, such as mobile phones, wearables, and ‘smart’ homes, can help us to understand our nutrition and activity and to guide us towards a healthier lifestyle,” says Young Sohn, President and Chief Strategy Officer, Device Solutions, Samsung Electronics.
