FutureFortified Global Summit on Food Fortification

9 - 11 September 2015, Arusha, Tanzania

Be part of the fight to end hidden hunger

More than two billion people suffer from micronutrient deficiency – or hidden hunger – which reduces cognitive development, increases maternal and infant mortality and impacts health and productivity, which undermine efforts to end global poverty.

Join us at FutureFortified, a unique three day global summit – part of international efforts to reinvigorate interest, awareness and investment in food fortification. By fortifying staple foods and condiments with vitamins and minerals, we can reduce micronutrient deficiency and make billions of people healthier, smarter and more productive. Food fortification is one of the least expensive and most effective nutrition interventions to tackle hidden hunger on a huge scale. The Summit will forge a vision and strategy for fortification to contribute to the Sustainable Development Goals and beyond.

The Summit will bring together experts from across a range of disciplines and include governments, academics, technical supporters, donors and beneficiaries.

The program will deliver in-depth analysis & impact assessments, powerful case studies, insightful interviews, panel discussions, plenaries and perspectives from all those that are engaged in food fortification. Technical and practical sessions will present successes and challenges, the latest evidence, and what still needs to be done.
