A cross-sectional market survey was conducted by the Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition (GAIN) with support from the International Centre for Diarrhoeal Disease Research, Bangladesh (icddr,b) and in collaboration with the Ministry of Industry in Bangladesh.
The aim of the survey was to:
- Assess the presence of edible oil brands, including imported and locally produced brands and unbranded oils in selected markets across the eight divisions of the country.
- Compare the vitamin A content of the edible oil brands with the national edible oil fortification standards.
The results of this survey inform programmatic decisions and support effective implementation of the edible oil food fortification programmes in Bangladesh.
