AP Foods’ approach to supplementary food production is a strong example of how GAIN’s nutrition partners learn from and use business-centered practices to achieve improved quality and efficiency within public sector or non-profit organisational contexts.
Dietary assessment data are essential for designing, implementing and evaluating food fortification and other food‐based nutrition programs. This paper strives to fill this gap in the literature while providing practical guidance to inform programming decisions.
This assessment of the wheat flour milling industry in Tajikistan looks at the current picture of the flour produced and sold in the country and the existing fortification provisions, identifies gaps and challenges in the milling industry in relation to future fortification efforts, and presents recommendations to enact and implement legislation to enhance flour fortification and therefore the nutritional standards of the population.
The purpose of this study was to examine the potential of Maisoyforte 6-24, a new fortified, non-instant cereal for infants and young children (IYC), which was proposed by a local Ghanaian company to the Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition (GAIN) for start-up support.
