Food fortification - an essential development strategy

Food fortification - an essential development strategy


Food fortification, the addition of vitamins and minerals to foods to make them more nutritious, is proven to have long-lasting positive effects on people’s lives by reducing micronutrient deficiencies. No other technology offers as large an opportunity to improve lives at such low cost and in such a short time. Every USD 1 spent on fortification results in USD 9 in benefits to the economy.

This panel discussion will focus on food fortification, its importance in achieving the Sustainable Development Goals, current EC fortification programmes, and the value of continued commitment and investment.
