Global Health Reporting & Responsibility

Over the years, we have made significant progress reformulating products by increasing positive nutrients, like whole grain, fiber and iron, and reducing limiters, like sodium and sugar. From fiscal 2005-2018, we tracked and shared our progress through our U.S. Health Metric reporting system, whereby we improved the nutrition of our U.S. Retail sales volume by 81% primarily by increasing positive nutrients or decreasing nutrients to limit.

In fiscal 2019, we updated and expanded our approach to a new global health reporting system that provides a transparent snapshot of the nutritional characteristics of our global portfolio. The process for determining which products qualify as Nutrition-Forward Foods is based on established nutrition criteria grounded in regulations, dietary guidance and nutrient density.
