On Monday November 16 the Access to Nutrition Initiative hosted a webinar in collaboration with Nutrition Connect as part of the ATNI Covid-19 Project series. The webinar – ‘Nutrition responses from food and beverage companies to the pandemic’ – saw all stakeholders (NGO/CSOs, investors, companies, policymakers, academics etc.) interested in how Covid-19 is impacting the food industry’s actions and nutrition outcomes globally participate in a stimulating discussion. After an introduction about ATNI Covid-19 Project series, the following topics were covered:

  • The developing Covid-19/ nutrition nexus
  • Why ATNI is monitoring company responses to the pandemic
  • ATNI’s approach and research process
  • Focus for each report
  • Key findings so far
  • Responses to project so far
  • Discussion: Responses from panelists and Q&A

Before starting a Q&A session, the following three panellists provided the audience with their views on the challenges faced and the responses implemented by the industry:

  • Lucy Sullivan, Executive Director at Feed the Truth
  • Laurene Aubert, Manager of SUN Business Network‘s Global Partnerships and GAIN Nutrition for Growth Lead
  • Inge Kauer, Executive Director at ATNI

We are more committed than ever to supporting the food industry’s responses to addressing the world’s nutrition challenges, particularly in the difficult context of a global pandemic. We recognize and are motivated by the fact that we are at the start of what is a unique and urgent opportunity to reorient the food system towards a more healthy, equitable and sustainable future. We look forward to seeing you at the webinar and working with you towards this ambitious goal.
