Main areas of strength

• As in the 2013 and 2016 Global Index, Lactalis’ disclosure is limited and therefore no clear areas of strengths were identified.

Priority areas for improvement

• As in the 2013 and 2016 Global Index, Lactalis’ disclosure is very limited and the company did not provide information upon request. Therefore, Lactalis’ score has remained 0.0 and it ranks twentieth.
• Lactalis ranks shared third on the Product Profile assessment with a score of 6.1 out of 10, based on an assessment of its major product categories in seven countries. Lactalis was estimated to derive 56% of its total sales from healthy products, i.e. achieve a rating of 3.5 or more on the Health Star Rating (HSR) system. These findings illustrate that more than half of products are considered healthy, covering three product groups namely ready-to-drink coffee, juice and dairy which all rated above the mean of all companies combined.
• Because it is privately owned, the company is not subject to the same regulatory disclosure requirements as publicly listed firms. However, Lactalis competes for the same consumers as those firms, and the success of its business is subject to the same market forces. Increased disclosure and engagement on nutrition initiatives would allow for a more complete assessment of the company’s performance in preventing and addressing obesity and undernutrition, as well as for the identification of areas of strength and those that need improvement.
