Progress Through Partnerships
The movement to fortify flour with essential vitamins and minerals is celebrating a 10-year milestone as the first global “Policy Planning Forum” for flour fortification was October in 2002. This movement led to a network of partners called the Flour Fortification Initiative (FFI).
In the ensuing 10 years, the number of countries requiring flour fortification with at least iron or folic acid has more than doubled from 33 to 75, and the amount of industrially milled flour being fortified has risen from 18 to 30%.
Advocates say this progress is due to the success of leaders in the public, private, and civic sectors working together to achieve the common goal of improving health through fortified flour.
