ATNI visits India17 November 2013
The Access to Nutrition Index intends to develop and publish ‘Spotlight Indexes’ that score and rate the ten largest F&B manufacturers in a specific country. During 2013, ATNF piloted this approach in India. India was selected as it has a rapidly developing food and beverage sector and it suffers from the double burden of malnutrition.
In November 2013 the ATNF team travelled to New Delhi and Mumbai. They updated companies and stakeholders on the launch of, and response to, the Global Index, outlined the work done on India to date, and set out ATNF’s plans in India for the future. ATNF also met with several other stakeholders, including key industry associations and made a presentation to a large number of NGOs at a meeting of the Nutrition Coalition.
