WFP (World Food Programme):
Lend food science expertise to tackle malnutrition
WFP aims not only to fill empty stomachs, but also to provide the hungry poor with the right food at the right time. Investing in good nutrition during the first 1,000 days of life builds the brains and bodies of the next generation and is a “best buy” of cost-effective interventions in tough economic times. By enhancing food with nutrients geared toward different populations, WFP is entering a new age in tackling malnutrition. The right mix of fortified food can produce dramatically improved outcomes for young children, pregnant and nursing mothers or people living with HIV/AIDS.
Food and nutrition companies can apply recent advances in science and food technology to tackle malnutrition around the world. Working with WFP’s nutritionists and food technologists, companies can share expertise in product development, packaging, milling and food safety to make WFP’s food the best it can be.
