Mexico

Introduction

Mexico was selected as Spotlight Country as it has a well-established Food & Beverage sector and it suffers from the double burden of malnutrition. Obesity levels have tripled in the past three decades; today a total of 47.9 million Mexican adults are overweight or obese. Over 34% of children are overweight or obese – the highest obesity rate among children ages 5 to 11 years of any country. 

ATNI visited Mexico during the development of the Indexes in 2011. In February 2014, ATNF’s Executive Director again visited the country to update companies and stakeholders on the launch of the Global Index, and the work done to pilot the ATNI approach in Mexico. This included pilot Product Profile research that evaluated the nutritional value of half of all products offered by the ten largest Food & Beverage manufacturers the Mexican market. You can download the methodology used for that research as well as the full results
