Join BASF Food Fortification at the European Development Days

Organized by the European Commission, the European Development Days (EDD) brings the development community together to share ideas and experiences in ways that inspire new partnerships and innovative solutions to the world’s most pressing challenges. The 14th edition of the European Development Days will take place on 15-16 June 2021 and will be fully digital. Visitors can follow events and browse through the virtual Global Village, interact with the stand owners there, and start new partnerships.

BASF will participate with a virtual booth in the Global Village and will offer one-to-one virtual interaction sessions with representatives from its Global Food Fortification team. Food fortification has been proven as one of the most efficient measures to combat malnutrition. In countries with mandatory fortification, it is estimated that 200 million people are not benefiting from national mandatory fortification programs due to non-compliance. BASF Food Fortification and Partnerships provides technical support, production solutions, quality assurance and quality control capacity, and partnership building as means to support achieving United Nations SDG2 Zero Hunger.
