Improving nutrition is the best investment that can be made in global health and development. In fact, leading economists have suggested that every US $1 spent generates up to US $30 payoff. But we can’t realize this immense potential on our own. That’s why we work closely with our local and international partners to help them to develop high-quality nutritional intervention solutions for those in need worldwide.
We’ve designed our premixes and market-ready products to be cost effective and high-quality – whatever a population’s nutritional needs and circumstances. Our fortified blends support our partners in NGOs, governments and the private sector to enrich staple foods with vital micronutrients that provide more nutritious alternatives to conventional staples or meet legislation requirements. All our nutritional solutions can be tailored to provide optimal nutrition for the most vulnerable worldwide, whether they are suffering from acute malnourishment, chronic malnutrition or hidden hunger.
Enriching staple foods like rice, flour and edible oils with micronutrients is a proven, cost-effective, scalable and sustainable method to tackle nutritional deficiencies.
Alongside our partners in governments, agencies, NGOs and the private sector, we’re committed to championing better compliance and positive policy changes that support efforts to scale up food fortification initiatives worldwide.
The World Health Assembly recently passed a resolution in May 2023 promoting food fortification as a cost-effective public health intervention, and companies like dsm-firmenich with advanced food fortification technologies and expertise are poised to help implement improved nutrition interventions globally.
We ensure our programs successfully reach those in need with superior Market-ready and Premix solutions that are palatable, safe and efficacious. This supports the seamless delivery of fortified foods that align with local preferences and dietary habits, providing a strategic edge with products which are palatable and effective at tackling micronutrient deficiencies.
Emergency and therapeutic foods provide quick and reliable access to nutrients for those in crisis situations such as conflicts, natural disasters and extreme economic upheavals.
These convenient to take, high-energy blends of macro- and micronutrients are specifically designed to help those suffering from malnutrition – including children and other vulnerable individuals – to return to optimal nutritional status.1,2
Our historic expertise and continued technical innovations support us to create quality nutritional solutions that deliver a profound impact, positively transforming the lives of the world’s most vulnerable.
Driven primarily by government health programs, public health supplementation initiatives aim to prevent disease, prolong life and promote health through optimal nutrition.
Driven primarily by government health programs, public health supplementation initiatives aim to prevent disease, prolong life and promote health through optimal nutrition. Those at greatest risk from malnutrition, including children and pregnant and lactating women, rely on these initiatives to evade the pernicious effects of poor health and resultant poverty that can span lifetimes and even generations.
