Measuring the world's 350 most influential food companies

To achieve the SDGs by 2030, we need transformational change from farm to fork. Food system transformation requires large-scale and fundamental action led by those who drive environmental, health and social pressures in the system.

The Food and Agriculture Benchmark will assess 350 keystone companies on the issues underpinning the food system transformation agenda. The benchmark’s aim is to stimulate companies to apply sustainable business practices throughout their operations as well as use their influence to encourage value chain partners to do the same. With the first benchmark due to be presented at the end of 2021, 2020 will be used to underline the importance for companies to make commitments to and set targets for a food system transformation that supports the 2030 agenda.
