Excerpt from 'New, Uniform Criteria...':

The 17-member CFBAI – which includes companies such as McDonald’s Corp., Sara Lee, and Unilever – helped develop the criteria over a year-long process, with the aid of top food industry scientists and nutritionists who took into account U.S. dietary guidelines.
