Our Commitment

Thank you for visiting our site to learn more about the issues featured in the film “Fed Up.”  At the Grocery Manufacturers Association, we believe the challenges featured in the film are important issues that we, as an industry, have been working aggressively to address.

For more than 100 years, America’s food industry has been a staple of America—trusted by generations of families to provide products that are safe, nutritious, affordable, time-saving, and well-balanced.

This is a responsibility that we take seriously and will never forget.

American food manufacturers now produce more than 39,000 different products, accommodating the vast variety of taste, cultural and dietary needs of America’s families.

Whether it is new packaging or new ways to prepare our products, or introducing low sodium, low fat and organic foods, we are constantly working to provide the products that empower all consumers to make the choices that are right for them and their families.

America’s food and beverage companies enthusiastically support First Lady Michelle Obama’s goal of solving childhood obesity within a generation, and recognize that the challenge of reducing obesity is one that requires everyone to do their part.  For the food and beverage industry, this means constantly working to increase transparency and provide consumers—especially parents—with healthier options and the information they need to maintain a healthy diet and active lifestyle.
