Changing the Game for Food Fortification

Last week, senior executives from the
ingredients and food processing industry gathered at the World Economic Forum in Davos,
Switzerland, to share ideas and progress on their critical joint actions to address the impact of the food price crisis and the massive global burden of malnutrition. One event, co-convened by DSM, TechnoServe and Endeva, called on private and public sector actors to support,
empower, and reward the food millers who fortify staple foods with essential
micronutrients and improve health at a population level.
