About us

We are a charity.


Our vision is simple. We believe that healthy, sustainable diets should be accessible to all.


To achieve this, we translate evidence-based nutrition science into accessible and engaging information that people – policy makers, industry leaders, health professionals and the general public – can act upon.


In all aspects of our work, we aim to communicate clearly, ensuring the information we provide is impartial, relevant and driven by our commitment to public benefit. 


We take pride in being a great place to work, and in creating information specifically designed to be accessible to all.


The principles of equity, diversity and inclusion are embedded across our organisation to help us to deliver our charitable aims and we have committed to support initiatives that widen inclusion in nutrition science more broadly.


Our vision is simple. We believe that healthy, sustainable diets should be accessible to all.
