On Tuesday, 20 July 2021, the Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition (GAIN), the Access to Nutrition Initiative (ATNI), the Consumer Goods Forum (CGF) and Nutrition Connect, hosted a webinar to support the alignment of business reporting on nutrition using a limited set of existing frameworks and tools. The webinar shared and built on the GAIN collaborative initiative’s results around better business accountability in nutrition, as well as reflected on ATNI in-depth expertise in assessing the largest food manufacturers and on CGF experience as a business association gathering more than 400 consumer goods retailers and manufacturers.
Based on a landscape analysis and the input from a three-year consultative process led by GAIN with the participation of ATNI and CGF on business accountability in nutrition, GAIN identified the alignment of business reporting on nutrition through existing reporting tools as an effective way to improve accountability. The results of the consultative initiative are detailed in three published reports:
- A review of business accountability mechanisms in nutrition, 2019
- Aligning business reporting innutrition - 2020 survey results, 2020
- Business Accountability for Better Nutrition, 2021
