Game Changer Profile
Niraj Jetly, COO and CIO at NutriSavings Read insights
As COO and Chief Information Officer at NutriSavings, Niraj Jetly and his team have pioneered a way to make healthy food both affordable and understandable, and are building a new ecosystem which is changing the game for corporate health costs and employee productivity in the process.
A spin-off from corporate services giant Edenred, Nutrisavings has harnessed data technologies, nationwide grocery partnerships, research, and innovative thinking around food choices to save costs for large employers and health plans, while boosting productivity and even life longevity for tens of thousands of users.
Jetly realized that the true front line in the battle for good, productive health in the US lay not in the pharmacy or the kitchen or even the gym, but rather in the nation’s grocery aisles – and that this was the one place where consumers were defenseless in that battle.
With tax forms easier to understand than the nutritional information on a box of cereal, according to research, Jetly has driven a simple scoring and incentives system which finally decodes nutrition, and plugs in layers of savings for everyone in the value chain.
