Board and Committee Leadership

Members of our Board of Directors take responsibility to sponsor our initiatives and Health & Wellness is currently co-sponsored at the Board level by Frans Muller, CEO of Ahold Delhaize, and Mark Schneider, CEO of Nestlé. As Board sponsors they actively drive and support the work of the Health & Wellness Steering Committee and present the team’s progress to their peers during our bi-annual Board of Directors meetings.

The Health & Wellness Steering Committee provides the strategic direction and oversees the daily management of our Health & Wellness activities. The Steering Committee is currently co-chaired by Isabelle Grosmaitre, Danone, and Alex Hurd, Walmart.

The Steering Committee has the mission of scoping and categorising existing momentum on health and wellness. It also aims to develop collaborative industry actions between retailers and manufacturers, as well as public-private partnerships, such as those with NGOs and public health authorities, to better promote health and wellness to consumers and shoppers.
