THE NESTLÉ WHEAT PLAN
Partnerships with farmers like Ian Matts from Brixworth Farm in Northampton are at the heart of our Nestlé Wheat Plan. We are supporting them to move to regenerative farming methods.
Over the years to come, this will help improve the natural environment where our wheat is grown.
Regenerative farming is widely recognised to improve the soil’s ability to capture carbon and boost local biodiversity, whilst continuing to grow great quality wheat crops. Better farming, better countryside.
HOW IS SHREDDED WHEAT® MADE?
The way we make SHREDDED WHEAT® biscuits at our Nestlé Cereal breakfast bakery in Staverton is surprisingly simple:
First, the wheat is cooked to soften it, then dried to reduce the grains surface moisture. After a rest for 8 hours, it’s shredding time. The wheat grains are fed through shredding rolls which squeeze them into spaghetti like wheat strands.
Formed into the iconic SHREDDED WHEAT® biscuit shape, our breakfast classic gets baked in the oven where it gets its golden colour and delicious crispiness.
