About Sponsorship

To advance the Academy's mission of empowering members to be the food and nutrition leaders, the Academy's corporate sponsorship program allows for purposeful collaboration with food and nutrition organizations.

Through structured, Academy-directed relationships the objectives of the Academy's corporate sponsorship program are:

  • To work with industry to build awareness of the Academy and its members
  • To share science-based information, new research and industry trends in food and nutrition with members
  • To enable the Academy to reach a wider consumer audience with healthy eating messages

For the Academy, relationships with sponsors are not about promoting their products or services, but rather about creating nutrition messages that people can understand and act upon to improve their health and that of their families. The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics and its entities consider the Academy's vision (optimizing health through food and nutrition) and mission (empowering members to be the food and nutrition leaders) in all decisions, including whether to enter into a relationship with an outside company and/or organization.
