Today marks the celebration of International School Meals Day
For over 55 years, we have been supporting our customers and public stakeholders in the development of school feeding and nutrition programmes around the world. Food security and nutrition remains a major challenge. 821 million people in the world are malnourished and 1 out of 5 children still suffer from stunted growth.
Our technology has played a key role in providing safe nutrition to school children in areas where there is limited access. In 2018, 66 million children in 59 countries received milk or other nutritious beverages in Tetra Pak packages in schools.
In 2014, 8.2 billion Tetra Pak packages filled with milk or other nutritious drinks reached 66 million children all around the world. In cooperation with governments, food processors, development agencies and NGO’s, Tetra Pak and Tetra Laval Food for Development are supporting practical implementation of school milk programmes around the world.
