The ultimate goal of the Access to Nutrition Indexes (ATNI) is to facilitate improved diets and a reduction of the serious global problems of both obesity and undernutrition.
The Access to Nutrition Index (ATNI) is founded on the premise that Food & Beverage manufacturers can make a strong contribution to addressing poor nutrition and related diseases. By assessing and ranking the world’s largest manufacturers on their nutrition-related commitments, practices and performance globally, ATNI aims to encourage companies to:
Increase consumer access to nutritious and affordable foods and beverages through actions related to product formulation, pricing and distribution; and
Responsibly exercise their influence on consumer choice and behavior through actions in areas such as marketing, labeling and promoting healthy diets and active lifestyles.
ATNI seeks to stimulate dialogue about how companies can improve their nutrition practices by serving as:
A means for companies to benchmark their approach to nutrition against their peers and identify areas for improvement; and
Through these paths of influence, the Indexes aim to encourage companies to increase consumer access to nutritious products and responsibly exercise their influence on consumer choice and behavior. The ultimate goal is to facilitate improved diets and a reduction in the serious global problems of both obesity and undernutrition.
Next to the Global Index, the Access to Nutrition Foundation publishes ‘Spotlight Indexes’ that score and rate the ten largest Food & Beverage manufacturers in each Spotlight Country. Methodologies for the Spotlight Indexes are adapted to fit national realities and give insight into how companiesperform in specific markets.
The Access to Nutrition Index rates food and beverage manufacturers´ nutrition-related policies, practices and disclosures worldwide on a recurring basis.
