IFBA was founded in 2008 by the CEOs of leading food and non-alcoholic beverage companies to empower consumers to eat balanced diets and live healthier lives, in support of the World Health Organization’s efforts to improve global public health.
We’ve expanded our actions over the years through a series of core commitments designed to support UN and WHO strategies. Our commitments reflect the mandate to the private sector set out in the 2018 UN Political Declaration on noncommunicable diseases (NCDs) and we believe these will remain the most impactful areas for food industry action on nutrition and health.
We proactively and publicly report on our progress annually, and collaborate with all involved to find bold, smart, diverse, and sustainable solutions to address global health challenges. We are on a journey. We’ve made great progress, but we know there’s more to do. And we will go further.
