Staple food fortification

Food fortification: The deliberate addition of essential micronutrients into a food.

Staple food fortification is a simple, safe and cost-effective way to add essential micronutrients to food. It can increase the nutritional status of whole populations, especially in regions where diets consist mainly of staples like wheat and rice. We support staple food fortification projects with our scientific, technical and regulatory know-how and with high-quality premix blends that can be composed according to specific needs.
