Chapter 11 in Food Fortification in a Globalized World, 1st Edition edited by M.G.Venkatesh Mannar and Richard Hurrell
This chapter provides the evidence that in many countries, food fortification is one of the better examples available of a sustained and effective partnership between business and government in the food sector over this past decade. Food is almost entirely delivered by markets and this necessitates appropriate engagement between the public and private sector in order to deliver foods which are both safe and nutritious to those who need them.
This chapter provides an overview of the tools, frameworks and platforms which facilitate effective collaboration. NFAs are examples of platforms which have worked to help build, improve, and sustain effective collaboration in food fortification. While the success has been clear, there remains a need to strengthen on existing partnerships and build new public private collaborations along the value chain. These collaborations should strengthen human capacity among all sectors, set new legislation and improve existing standards, and improve regulatory monitoring of fortified foods.
