How large-scale food fortification will define Bangladesh’s future

Micronutrient deficiencies are a public health challenge in Bangladesh. Many children, women, and vulnerable populations are not getting the nutrients they need for proper brain development, immunity, and physical and mental health.

Together with diversified diets, large scale food fortification has the potential to make a significant impact on micronutrient deficiency in Bangladesh. By ensuring that vitamins and minerals are added to staple foods, in line with the mandated national standards, fortified food producers have the power to transform the health of the nation.
