Global Index 2018


Six companies have been assessed using the BMS methodology developed for the 2018 Index following extensive consultation with many stakeholders. These include four food and beverage companies - Nestlé, Danone, FrieslandCampina and Kraft Heinz, and two other companies - Abbott and RB/Mead Johnson Nutrition*. The latter two companies are not included in the 2018 Global Index, but they were assessed to provide a more complete comparison of the world’s major baby-food producers.

*Mead Johnson Nutrition (MJN) was acquired in the summer of 2017 by RB (formerly known as Reckitt Benckiser) and is referred to now as RB/MJN. The company’s BMS 1 assessment is based on information in the public domain when the research commenced (summer 2017) as well as any additional materials that RB choose to share with ATNF or make public until the end of the research process (November 2017).
