The British Nutrition Foundation's scientific integrity, objectivity and impartiality ensure that it is held in high esteem within the nutrition and education communities, and it protects this standing through its strong governance, policies and working practices. We have established a longstanding reputation for partnership working and value the alliances and collaborations we have forged over the years.
BNF’s staff of experienced, qualified nutritionists and educators consider commissions for project work from a range of public and private sector organisations. All projects must adhere to the Foundation’s values and strict working practices and must further the Foundation’s core objective of promoting good nutrition in the context of public health. The Foundation’s specific objects are:
To undertake, for the public benefit, the education of the public in nutrition and the dissemination of information relating to nutrition.
The advancement for the public benefit of the training and education of persons involved in the training or education of others in nutrition.
The advancement for the public benefit of the study of, and research into, nutrition.
Case study examples of recent and current projects with a range of organisations can be viewed here.
