GAIN India has been a key technical partner to the FSSAI in its efforts to scale up edible oil fortification. Staple food fortification presently is voluntary across all staple foods except mandatory fortification of salt with iodine. However, the recent draft notification (December 2020) for mandatory fortification of edible oil and milk has been a welcome step in measures to mitigating against micronutrient malnutrition across the population. This would require a significant scale-up of efforts to achieve scale.

Over the years, efforts by GAIN and others have helped reach almost 900 million people through an annual production of ~8 million MT of fortified edible oil. At this juncture, GAIN is keen to capture lessons learned from scaling up edible oil fortification in India.

The objectives of this RFP are to:

  • Develop a knowledge product in the form of a detailed research paper that would present a comprehensive overview of GAIN India’s role in scaling up edible oil fortification in the country.
  • To identify the role of GAIN’s Large Scale Food Fortification (LSFF) program in this process and provide evidence of the “successful” engagement of key stakeholders in scaling up fortification efforts across the country.
  • Identify advocacy messages and opportunities for the mandatory fortification of oil and provide data and evidentiary support to inform policies related to staple food fortification
  • Provide detailed information of the drivers of success, and how the most critical approaches were contextualized to India, and identify lessons for replication in other geographies
