For the U.S. Index 2018, three companies were assessed: Abbott Laboratories Inc., Nestlé and RB/Mead Johnson Nutrition. They were chosen because they are the largest players in the baby food market: together they account for nearly 80% of market share and the majority of BMS marketing in the United States. Only Nestlé is a constituent of the overall U.S. Spotlight Index; the other two companies are not included in the Index because neither is classified as a food and beverage manufacturer.
The Access to Nutrition Index rates food and beverage manufacturers´ nutrition-related policies, practices and disclosures worldwide on a recurring basis.
