The Second Global Summit on Food Fortification Virtual Series aims to build consensus around the most important actions that should be pursued for staple food fortification to meet its potential for reducing malnutrition worldwide.
Monthly interactive #FutureFortified sessions will take place online beginning in January 2021 and culminating before the Tokyo Nutrition for Growth Summit in December.
All online Summit events will be free and open to all.
The Second Global Summit on Food Fortification is part of a worldwide effort to invigorate interest, awareness, and investment in Large-Scale Food Fortification (LSFF) and biofortification – two population-based interventions with enormous potential to contribute sustainably to reducing and preventing micronutrient deficiencies globally. This high-level event will provide a basis for new fortification commitments from governments, donors, and the private sector at the upcoming Nutrition for Growth Summit in Japan.
The Summit was launched with a high-level virtual event at the Micronutrient Forum 5th Global Conference CONNECTED on 6 November, 2020. Watch the recording here.
*The Summit Series takes place predominantly online due to the COVID-19 pandemic. A single event was originally planned to take place in Bangkok, Thailand in March 2020.
