The Access to Nutrition Index (ATNI) is the first systematic effort to compare major global food and beverage (F&B) manufacturers’ contribution to addressing global nutrition challenges. It provides stakeholders with a comprehensive and objective picture of what companies are doing well, where they lag international best practice and where they can improve. ATNI is published by the Access to Nutrition Foundation (ATNF), an independent non-profit organisation based in the Netherlands dedicated to objectively analysing the contribution of the private sector in addressing the global nutrition crisis.

The rationale for their Global Index is simple: One in three people worldwide are now either undernourished, overweight or obese; as a result, we face a global health catastrophe.

For the first time, this Index includes the results of a nine-country Product Profile which analysed the nutritional quality of 23,000 products made by the Index companies. Inge Kauer, Executive Director of the Access to Nutrition Foundation which develops and publishes the Global Index, will present the results from the recently launched 2018 Index, focusing particularly on whether the 22 Global Index companies have improved their performance since the last Global Index was published in 2016.
