India Spotlight Index 2020
The India Spotlight Index 2020 shows an increased commitment to provide healthy food by the 16 largest food and beverage manufacturers in India. The food and beverage industry is actively engaging and acting on initiatives and regulatory developments proposed by the Food Safety and Standards Authority of India. Current industry efforts are not sufficient to match the scale of the nutrition challenge that India faces. Few companies provide evidence of comprehensively tackling under nutrition, micro-nutrient deficiencies, and overweight and obesity, in all relevant business areas. Of the 1456 products assessed in the Product Profile 16% meet healthy standards. All companies are to increase the healthiness of their portfolios. Hindustan Unilever and Nestlé India rank joint first with a score of 6.9 out of 10. Britannia Industries and Cola-Cola India have shown substantial individual progress across most elements of the Index since 2016.
