Better Nutrition for All
We think it’s unacceptable that – despite the obesity problem – Australians aren’t getting the nutrition they need.
We believe everyone should have access to natural goodness, everyday, and the nutritional literacy needed to support good choices and we are investing in two initiatives to achieve this:
Healthier Australia Commitment
Lion is a proud founding member of the Australian Food and Grocery Council’s (AFGC) Healthier Australia Commitment, an industry partnership aimed at helping Australians improve their health and wellbeing. Members are working together to reduce the combined intake of sodium, saturated fat and energy delivered by our products in a typical diet.
Under the ‘Together Counts’ campaign banner, the partners are championing an intelligent approach to energy balance, the point where food intake and physical activity are perfectly matched. Program ambassador Susie O’Neill provides nutrition and physical activity tips, nutritious recipe ideas and a Healthy Balance Checker tool, which helps families to learn more about how simple lifestyle changes can change their lives for the better.

Our dairy portfolio offers essential nutrition for all Australians. Unfortunately, many who are doing it tough can struggle to get enough. Our partnership with Foodbank provides surplus milk and other products to the homeless and in 2015 alone we delivered 2,419,500 meals for people in need with 1,546.82kg of surplus food.
