The Access to Nutrition Index (ATNI) is founded on the premise that Food & Beverage manufacturers can make a strong contribution to addressing poor nutrition and related diseases. The ATNI assesses and ranks the world’s largest manufacturers based on their nutrition-related commitments, practices and performance globally.


This metric considers product pricing and distribution.


To perform well in this Category, companies should:

  • State a clear commitment and have a formal policy and targets on both affordability and availability of healthy and fortified products.
  • Demonstrate a clear focus on low-income populations and show evidence of conducting market research to inform their strategies.
  • Apply their approach to affordability and availability across all the markets they operate in - both developed and developing.
  • Provide evidence of how they are delivering on their commitments.
  • Publicly disclose their commitments and policies and report evidence of implementing their commitments.
