Food, Drink Industry ‘Moving Far Too Slowly’ To Address Global Undernutrition, Obesity, Report Says

The Guardian: Food firms slow to address twin scourges of undernutrition and obesity
“The world’s largest food and drink companies still have a long way to go to participate fully in the global fight against the twin scourges of obesity and undernutrition, a new report claims. The global Access to Nutrition Index 2016 — which scores 22 leading multinational firms on corporate strategy, availability of appropriate, affordable and accessible products, and positive influence on consumer choice and behavior — notes that while some have taken steps to address the worldwide nutrition crisis, ‘the industry as whole is moving far too slowly’…” (Jones, 1/13).
