Over the past 10 years Nestlé has worked closely with the Australian Institute of Sport, particularly in the areas of education and nutrition. The partnership allows Nestlé to learn from and leverage the AIS’ 27 years of nutrition and fitness expertise. Nestlé supports the AIS on a number of nutrition and fitness fronts, funding a full time member of the AIS Sports Nutrition team, an athlete career scholarships for young athletes, and customised nutrition literature for athletes and all Australians.
In particular, Nestlé and the AIS have developed free nutrition educational resources for school teachers. Over 60% of Australian primary schools have downloaded this information since the program's inception.
