The Access to Nutrition Indexes have been built on the premise that the food and beverage sector can change and improve. ATNI Indexes provide a multitude of stakeholders with the robust data and analysis they need to measure company performance, to track progress and to engage in progressive dialogue with a solid evidence base.

By assessing and ranking the world’s largest manufacturers and retailers 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.
