Nigeria to lead globally in developing a digital solution to guarantee nutritional quality of staple foods

With the support of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, GAIN is leading implementation of a pilot programme to develop a digitized system to ensure staple foods are fortified with the right levels of essential vitamins and minerals to support good health and nutrition. The system will also track the fortified foods to ensure they are reaching Nigerian consumers efficiently.

The oil producers selected to participate in the pilot will receive support from a team of digital experts to co-design and install the new digital quality assurance/quality control system. The system will utilize state of the art diagnostic tools, from in-line sensors to monitor production flows to calibration aids and reporting software, that can deliver guaranteed quality and insights important to producers’ bottom line.
