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 looks at whether a company can better sustain and scale-up its nutrition activities if its commitment starts at the top of the organization and is integrated into its core business strategy, and measures:

A1 Corporate nutrition strategy

A2 Nutrition governance and management systems

A3 Quality of reporting


To perform well in this Category, companies should:

  • Commit at Board level to address both obesity and diet-related chronic diseases and undernutrition.
  • Set clear nutrition strategies, objectives and targetsin all business areas underpinned by strategic market research.
  • Establish and use incentive and accountability structures at senior management level to reward successful implementation of nutrition strategies.
  • Seek advice from formal expert bodies with a wide range of expertise.
  • Demonstrate high and increasing levels of sales of healthy and fortified products.
  • Pledge to direct undernutrition-related activities to priority population groups in priority countries, i.e. those with the highest levels of undernutrition and related illnesses.
  • Clearly and comprehensively report on activities to prevent and address obesity and undernutrition, on a global basis.
