In today’s fast-paced corporate world, the health and well-being of employees are paramount for employers and HR directors. The prevalence of non-communicable diseases, such as obesity, cardiovascular conditions, and diabetes, poses a significant challenge to the sustainability of employer-sponsored healthcare. In fact, 63% of the workforce is currently overweight or obese, resulting in 18% of healthcare spending being allocated to treat these conditions. The impact of poor health extends beyond the individual, costing Europe an average of $2.7 trillion annually in lost economic opportunity. These staggering figures demand immediate action to address the root causes of these health challenges.
Reveal My Food is a groundbreaking technology-driven solution designed to transform workplace nutrition and create a healthier and more sustainable food environment for employees. By prioritizing personalized nutrition, this innovative platform aims to reduce the prevalence of non-communicable diseases, enable better management of health insurance contracts, and significantly reduce carbon footprints. Additionally, Reveal My Food fosters inclusivity by accommodating individual dietary needs and health necessities, uniting the workforce around the most fundamental of human needs: eating and health.
The Current State of Health and Nutrition:
The obesity pandemic and its associated health risks are increasingly straining healthcare systems and impacting employee productivity. McKinsey research estimates that timely and consistent interventions can reduce the health burden related to non-communicable diseases by 30% over the next two decades. Poor nutrition has nearly three times the impact on health as low fitness, highlighting the urgency to address dietary habits. Fortunately, a recent McKinsey Health survey revealed that at least 70% of respondents across different markets aspire to lead healthier lives, with healthy eating topping the priority list for 50% of consumers.
The Evolving Food Environment:
Digital food environments have rapidly evolved, driven by increased broadband access, improved payment safety, and the demand for convenient meal options. However, these environments often perpetuate the “obesogenic food environment,” where high-fat, high-sugar, and high-calorie food offerings dominate. Despite consumers’ desire to eat more healthily and sustainably, almost half struggle to find the right ways to do so due to consistent nudges to purchase unhealthy food, lack of nutritional knowledge, and limited information when eating out or ordering food.
Addressing Unmet Needs:
Reveal My Food aims to address these unmet needs by leveraging technology to provide a personalized nutrition food ordering app. This app matches employees’ health needs with the food available from canteens and food suppliers, promoting a complete and varied diet following Mediterranean and Lancet planetary diet consumption patterns. The platform offers AI-powered recommendations that monitor employees’ basket purchases, increasing adherence to a healthy eating regimen. By ensuring faster order service and reducing queues at canteens, Reveal My Food enhances employee convenience and satisfaction.
Benefits for Employers, Employees, and Health Insurance Providers:
Reveal My Food offers a multitude of benefits for all stakeholders involved. For employers, implementing this platform yields a high return on investment by improving overall employee health and well-being. This, in turn, reduces healthcare costs and increases productivity and employee retention. Moreover, Reveal My Food enables employers to optimize benefits packages, thereby enhancing member satisfaction and managing costs effectively.
Employees, the driving force behind any organization’s success, are empowered with personalized nutrition guidance and easy access to healthier food options. The platform’s ability to accumulate points towards corporate or health insurance benefits incentivizes employees to prioritize their health and well-being. By adopting Reveal My Food, employees can also contribute to the reduction of their carbon footprint, as the platform encourages adherence to plant-based Mediterranean diets.
