Access to Nutrition Initiative (ATNI) today announced the signing of a non-binding Memorandum of Understanding ("MoU") with Food Systems for the Future Institute (FSFI).

The MoU provides the foundation to strengthen existing corporate accountability initiatives and to ensure that engagement between both organizations helps accelerate nutrition-related efforts of the private sector and investors.

Under the terms of the MoU, ATNI and FSFI commit to a collaborative effort aimed at increasing impact investing in nutrition across diverse global markets. This collaboration will be underpinned by trust, with both organizations relying on each other for critical feedback and review of their respective outputs. They will also help in disseminating relevant outputs related to nutrition impact measurement and management, amplifying the reach and effectiveness of their initiatives.

Furthermore, FSFI and ATNI will engage as critical thought partners in global fora, contributing expertise and insights to advance common goals especially around unlocking finance for nutritious foods. Additionally, they will explore opportunities for co-fundraising, leveraging resources for shared objectives, thus maximizing their collective impact.

The MoU will be reviewed every two years for adjustments.

“More than ever, we need to work together to ensure that markets are transformed for sustainable nutrition. I’m excited to partner with FSFI, align on metrics and targets, and speak with one voice when engaging with agri-food companies as well as investors.”

Greg S Garrett, Executive Director Access to Nutrition Initiative

“Collaboration is key to transforming markets for sustainable nutrition. We are thrilled to continue working with ATNI, aligning on metrics, and collectively advocating for impactful change within the agri-food sector and investment landscape. Together, we will amplify our voices and drive meaningful progress towards a more nourished world.”
