The new packaging will be added to 100 million Nestlé packs that will be on shelves by the end of this month.

The new packaging will also feature a blue band with information about Nanhi Kali, one of the largest non-governmental organisations (NGO) providing education to underprivileged girls across India.

"Girls with access to education not only improve their own lives but also bring positive changes to their families, communities and economies."

Nestlé India chairman and managing director Suresh Narayanan said: “We are changing the packaging of three of our most iconic brands to sensitise and draw attention to the crucial need for society and citizens to embrace our collective responsibility in ensuring that girls are allowed, given access to and nurtured with the power of education.

“Girls with access to education not only improve their own lives but also bring positive changes to their families, communities and economies.”

The company is currently running the Nestlé healthy kids programme, which has already reached out to nearly 100,000 beneficiaries.
