The U.S. Access to Nutrition Spotlight Index 2018 is the first of its kind. It is designed to examine the contributions made by the leading food and beverage manufacturers in the United States to increase consumers’ access to affordable, healthy foods and beverages. The Index does this by assessing the policies, practices and disclosure of the ten largest food and beverage manufacturers in the Corporate Profile. Additionally, the Index assesses and analyzes how healthy companies’ product portfolios are in the Product Profile.
The U.S. Spotlight Index is designed to serve as a private sector accountability tool. It aims to fill critical knowledge gaps about the performance of the ten largest food and beverage manufacturers in contributing to addressing the high rates of obesity and diet-related disease in the United States. It is also intended to encourage companies to improve their scores and ranking in future editions of the Index – which in turn will contribute to create healthier businesses and healthy returns to investors.
The Access to Nutrition Index rates food and beverage manufacturers´ nutrition-related policies, practices and disclosures worldwide on a recurring basis.
