Food Fortification


Working in multi-stakeholder alliances to ensure a sustainable impact

We work with multi-stakeholder alliances to ensure the success and sustainability of the projects we are engaged in. Together with our partners we work on creating holistic solutions in the area of food fortification – from the food producer to the end consumer, offering solutions along the whole nutrition value chain. In our projects we are working with private and public sector partners, NGOs, and academia. If you would like to get engaged with us on food fortification projects, please get in contact with us.

Achieving food fortification success requires commitment and effort by both private and public partners. We create shared value partnerships in this multi-stakeholder ecosystem to improve nutrition and end hidden hunger caused by micronutrient deficiencies. Food fortification is an investment in the future.

Partnership project examples

Affordable Nutritious Foods for Women

The strategic alliance “Affordable Nutritious Foods for Women” (ANF4W) took place in 2017 and was constituted an innovative approach to reduce the global burden of micronutrient deficiencies particularly in women of reproductive age and kids below the age of two. For ANF4W, we teamed up with “Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit” (GIZ) in a systemic multi-stakeholder partnership model to provide micronutrients for women of reproductive age and kids in Kenya and Tanzania.

Strategic Alliance for the Fortification of Oil and Other Staple Foods

The “Strategic Alliance for the Fortification of Oil and Other Staple Foods” (SAFO) was a development partnership between BASF and GIZ, on behalf of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), which was running from 2008 until 2012. The objective of SAFO was to improve access by low-income population groups in selected developing and transition countries to vitamin-A-fortified staple foods. The project has reached more than 100 million people at risk of malnutrition in the main partner countries of SAFO in Asia, Africa, and South America.
