Helping vulnerable people

Getting better food to undernourished children makes them 33% more likely to escape the vicious cycle of poverty, according to our long-term partner, the World Food Programme. There are many statistics on the challenge we face in feeding the world, but this one summarises the life-changing role that better nutrition can play in giving vulnerable people everywhere a brighter future (especially in the first 1,000 days of life). It’s why we’re focused on using all the great nutritional science at our disposal to end ‘hidden hunger’, a condition caused by deficiencies in vitamins and minerals that afflicts two billion people worldwide.

Affordable nutrition for micronutrient deficient populations

When it comes to tackling malnutrition, we take our lead from the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) – particularly SDG 2, which advocates ‘zero hunger’ and aims to end all forms of malnutrition by 2030.

As one of the world’s leading manufacturers of vitamins, nutritional ingredients and food fortification technologies, we’re well placed to develop and deliver better nutrition for the people deficient in these. It’s why, at DSM, our Nutritional Improvement team provides a range of nutrient-rich foods that range from micronutrient powders to fortified rice, while working with humanitarian organizations, food companies and social enterprises to reach the wider population.
