Updated Methodology for consultation: 2023 Food and Agriculture Benchmark

Download Methodology

The global food systems challenges call for a profound and swift transformation of how we produce, process, retail and consume food. WBA’s Food and Agriculture Benchmark is the first of its kind to assess companies across the entirety of the food and agriculture system, from farm to fork.

In 2023, the second iteration of the benchmark will be published, and show the progress made by the private sector on the food systems transformation, feeding into the UN Food Systems Summit stocktaking event in 2023.

Today we publish the updated Methodology for public consultation, which will be used for the 2023 Food and Agriculture Benchmark. The document suggests relevant revisions to the methodology by incorporating both internal learnings and external feedback from companies and other stakeholders, following the first benchmark publication in 2021.

WBA methodologies serve as roadmaps to set out what good looks like based on societal expectations and the latest scientific research. It is therefore vital that our methodologies are continuously updated to ensure they are relevant and what we do is coherent and complementary.

We invite companies and all benchmark stakeholders to review and share their comments with us by sending feedback to by the 26th of August 2022.
