PARIS, 27th January 2016 – The Consumer Goods Forum (“CGF”) today published results from its 2015 survey designed to measure where its members are in the implementation of its Health & Wellness Resolutions and Commitments. Results show that good progress has been made in a number of key areas, but members also openly acknowledge that more needs to be done to harness the consumer goods industry’s collective power. The survey and report were developed in partnership with Deloitte.

- the industry’s health and wellness programmes have reformulated 84,000 products, included the participation of 2.3 million employees, and work with more than 5,000 communities around the globe;
- with regards to the four Health & Wellness Commitments:
- 49% of respondents have publicly communicated their nutrition and formulation policies
