“Hidden hunger” is a form of undernutrition affecting millions of people in sub-Saharan Africa. Food fortification is a cost-effective strategy for addressing hidden hunger,helping people to access the nutrition they need. The Strengthening African Processors of Fortified Foods Project helps food companies in Africa to improve their capacity to produce and sell fortified foods for local markets.
Solutions for African Food Enterprises (SAFE) was a public-private partnership between TechnoServe, Partners in Food Solutions, and USAID that aimed to increase the competitiveness of the African food processing sector to expand availability of affordable and nutritious foods to local populations. The program benefited more than 1,000 food processors who source from more than 800,000 smallholder farmers in five countries.
As an implementing partner of the Thrive program, an initiative of the US Agency for International Development, TechnoServe, with support from PATH and Partners in Food Solutions, is helping to support an innovative program to improve the nutritional status of people living with HIV and developing new market opportunities for local food processors and retailers.
