Second Global Summit on Food Fortification Series

About


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. These two interventions have enormous potential to contribute sustainably to reducing and preventing micronutrient deficiencies globally. 

The summit series included topics on rice fortification, digitization, fortifying the supply chain, the full-power of LSFF, the mightiness of nutrients to help in all areas of vulnerability and more. 

This webinars in this series provide a basis for building consensus around the most important actions that should be pursued for staple food fortification to meet its potential for reducing malnutrition worldwide. All Summit events are freely available for use.

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.

COVID-19 has revealed many fundamental challenges in our food systems, limiting access to fresh foods and the essential vitamins and minerals that we all need to survive, thrive and be strong amidst the constant threat of disease. This Summit Series is our opportunity to elevate the urgency of the unfinished agenda and harness the potential of food fortification for a sustainable, food secure and well-nourished future for all.
