Any type of resource available online.
Commitments and disclosures of top Malaysian food companies, covering food and non-alcoholic
beverage manufacturers, quick service restaurants and food retailers, were assessed in relation to
population nutrition and health. This was a pioneering academic-led study in Malaysia, which aimed
at identifying gaps in the food company policies and their Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR)
approaches, using available information and comparing across companies, government mandates and
international norms. The findings will inform relevant stakeholders about food industry leadership in
relation to nutrition and food environment policies, as well as provide recommendations for improving
their commitments and disclosure practices.
