The ATNI Corporate Profile methodology used for the Global Index 2021 assesses companies’ nutrition-related commitments and policies, practices, and disclosure across seven categories. A product profiling exercise, assessing the healthiness of companies’ product portfolios using the Health Star Rating model, is also part of the Corporate Profile. Similar to 2018, scores of companies that have been assessed for the 2021 BMS/CF Marketing Index are adjusted based on their BMS/CF scores.

Note that there have been some changes to the methodology and presentation since the 2018 Global Index:
Please note that the findings of this Index regarding companies’ performance are based to a large extent on information shared by companies, in addition to information that is available in the public domain. Several factors beyond the companies’ control may impact the availability of information, such as differences in disclosure requirements among countries or capacity constraints within companies due to, among other factors, the Covid-19 pandemic. Therefore, in the case of limited or no engagement by such companies, this Index may not represent the full extent of their efforts.
