The programme offers a package of complementary medical examinations, including vitamin D, morphological, hormonal and oncological tests. Employees at distribution centres and offices in Poland also have access to ultrasound scans of the abdomen, breast and thyroid, as well as consultations with specialists including nutritionists, dermatologists and oncology nurses.


Clinical nutrition programme

The aim of this programme is to promote healthy eating habits and ensure nutritional monitoring of employees with health problems, responding to identified needs in relation to obesity and diseases such as diabetes, hypertension and dyslipidaemia (e.g. high cholesterol).

The programme is based on three main elements:

  • Nutrition counselling.
  • Literacy actions.
  • Modulation of the environment (e.g. healthy food options available in the workplace).
