Segment ranking summary

DMK sits in the middle of the ranking in both its segments, demonstrating it has started the journey to food system transformation but with significant room for improvement. However, the company does not show leadership among its peers as it provides no evidence of leading practice and lacks significant disclosure across all measurement areas. Notably, it lags behind its direct peers in the social inclusion measurement area, as well as in nutrition where it has an opportunity to disclose how it is increasing the availability, affordability and accessibility of healthy foods.
