India Spotlight Index

Global Index 2016


The methodology for this Index is organized into Sections, Categories, Criteria and Indicators:

  • Sections: Three sections covering companies’: I) nutrition governance and management, II) approach to formulating and delivering appropriate, affordable, accessible products, and III) influencing consumer choice and behavior.
  • Categories: Seven broad categories (A-G) relevant to companies’ nutrition-related practices.
  • Criteria: More detailed criteria within each of the Categories (20 in total).
  • Indicators: Indicators within each criteria on which companies are scored.

There are three types of indicators: those related to companies’ commitments, performance and disclosure.

The Corporate Profile methodology is based on existing international standards, guidelines and frameworks, such as those developed by the WHO, Codex Alimentarius (Codex) and other leading nutrition-focused organizations.
