Unilever Food Solutions Encourages Chefs To Create Healthy, Sustainable Meals Through Sponsorship Of Menus Of Change Conference

Unilever Food Solutions, the food service division of Unilever, is furthering the goal of its Seductive Nutrition initiative by sponsoring the 2 nd Annual Menus of Change ® leadership summit. The initiative asks chefs to pledge to make small changes to popular menu items that reduce calories, but still preserve the flavors and dining experience. Unilever Food Solutions also announced that for each new chef pledge through the end of 2014, it will help provide 18 meals* to Feeding America ®.

To date, foodservice professionals across 8,500 locations in North America have taken the Seductive Nutrition pledge, resulting in nearly 3.2 billion calories being removed from menus. Unilever strives to help American chefs remove 10 billion calories by the end of 2015.

“To understand what we should be putting on our plates today, we need to look ahead five, 10 and 20 years, in terms of health and sustainability,” said Jonathan Atwood, vice president of sustainable living and corporate communications, Unilever North America. “We are encouraged by the healthy changes we’ve seen on restaurant menus and in meals at home. The food service industry has an important role to play in expanding healthy, affordable and sustainable meal offerings and we believe that through collaboration we can drive meaningful change. We’re here today to further the movement and motivate chefs to take the Seductive Nutrition pledge.”

Menus of Change, co-presented by The Culinary Institute of America and Harvard School of Public Health, Department of Nutrition, brings together industry leaders to share insights and solutions for healthy, sustainable and delicious food choices. At the event, Atwood and colleagues discussed progress toward the Seductive Nutrition pledge goal, along with the company’s initiatives on sustainability.

“Small changes can have a big, long-term impact on health,” said Kim Morgan, vice president of channel marketing, Unilever Food Solutions. “Seductive Nutrition gives chefs the power to take action now, removing calories from their menus and helping provide meals to American families who need them. There are many ways to make dishes delicious and reduce calories with simple changes, such as using healthier cooking methods, fresh ingredients, more vegetables, leaner proteins and lighter ingredients, as well as serving right-size portions.”
