Six companies have been assessed using the BMS methodology developed for the 2016 Index following extensive consultation with many stakeholders, including the WHO. These include four food and beverage companies – Nestlé, Danone, FrieslandCampina and Heinz, and two pharmaceutical companies – Abbott and Mead Johnson. The latter two companies are not included in the 2016 Global Index, but they were assessed to provide a more complete comparison of the world’s major baby-food producers.
The Access to Nutrition Index rates food and beverage manufacturers´ nutrition-related policies, practices and disclosures worldwide on a recurring basis.
