About the Index

The Access to Nutrition Index (ATNI) is founded on the premise that Food & Beverage manufacturers can make a strong contribution to addressing poor nutrition and related diseases. By assessing and ranking the world’s largest manufacturers 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.

ATNI seeks to stimulate dialogue about ways in which companies can improve their nutrition practices by serving as:

  • A means for companies to benchmark their approach to nutrition against their peers and identify areas for improvement; and

  • An independent source of information for stakeholders interested in monitoring and/or engaging with the food and beverage industry on nutrition issues.

Through these paths of influence, ATNI aims to encourage companies to increase consumer access to nutritious products and responsibly exercise their influence on consumer choice and behavior. The ultimate goal is to facilitate improved diets and a reduction in the serious global problems of both obesity and undernutrition.

Next to the Global Index, ATNF will also develop and publish ‘Spoltlight Indexes’ that score and rate the ten largest Food & Beverage manufacturers in each Spotlight Country.

Improving nutrition for all

The Access to Nutrition Index rates food and beverage manufacturers´ nutrition-related policies, practices and disclosures worldwide on a recurring basis.
