This measurement area addresses key actions that are needed to achieve healthy and sustainable diets. Globally, one person in ten is hungry or undernourished, while one in three adults are overweight or obese. Healthy diets are unaffordable to 3 billion people in the world and diet-related health costs are projected to exceed USD 1.3 trillion per year by 2030. Food and agriculture companies each have a unique role to play in realizing this transformation.

The nutrition measurement area is where the 350 companies demonstrate the poorest performance across the benchmark, highlighting the general lack of disclosure by companies in addressing nutritional topics. Nonetheless, the few high performers in this segment disclose relevant information across all key topics, presenting an example for other companies to follow their approach. Notably, companies in the food and beverage processors and manufacturers segment outperform those sitting in other value chain segments.

While around three quarters of companies disclose a commitment towards ensuring food safety, more than 60% of the companies demonstrate a lack of disclosure of activities to support the availability of healthy and nutritious foods. Moreover, only 20% of the companies assessed commit to addressing food insecurity by improving the accessibility and affordability of healthy foods. Although 43% of the consumer-facing companies disclose information about transparent labelling practices, 77% of them do not disclose a commitment to responsible marketing.

The best performers among food and beverage processors and retailers disclose comprehensive strategies to address the availability of healthy foods, by setting nutritional standards and targets to increase the proportion of products with improved nutritional characteristics. Moreover, their nutrition strategies are accompanied by responsible marketing policies and disclosure on transparent labelling practices. The two leading food ingredients companies stand out for their strategic commitments and solutions to improve the nutritional quality of food products and to address micronutrient deficiencies. Moreover, two of the leading input companies score highly thanks to their initiatives and partnerships to address food insecurity and to support the production and accessibility of nutritious foods.
