Mission, Vision, Values


Our Vision 

A future in which all people in Ireland enjoy the life-enhancing benefits of good nutrition, in health and disease.

Our Mission

To advance the leading role of our members in improving the nation’s health through food and nutrition.

Our Values

Our values are fundamental to future success and guide our decisions and actions.

We expect all of our staff and our members to embrace them.

Inclusive and caring

Caring about patients and clients and the desire to make a difference to people’s lives is central to the service our members provide. In the same way, we want to foster a caring, inclusive and open culture that embraces and serves all of our members equally, whether they work in clinical practice, research, industry or self-employment.

Ambitious and focused

We have high expectations for our organisation and its members. We are focused on shaping a future in which our members are universally recognised and valued for their expertise and unique skill-set.


We in INDI are open to new ideas and to developing creative solutions to recognise the ever changing needs of our members, stakeholders and the general public.

Committed to excellence

As an organization representing the most highly skilled and trusted nutrition experts in the country, we are committed to maintaining the highest professional standards of practice. All of our practising members are CORU Registered and must undertake and record continuous professional development. Our Education Steering Group ensures that all our members have access to internationally recognized standards of practice.

Collaborative and supportive

We actively encourage members to share their ideas, time, expertise and resources with others, through which everyone benefits. We also realise that we cannot achieve our goals by working in isolation. That’s why we actively seek opportunities to work in partnership with others to achieve mutual goals.


We are passionate about the need to develop talent and the acquisition of a broad skillset amongst our membership. We provide support and opportunities for our members to achieve their professional and personal development goals.
