Be part of the fight to end hidden hunger.

More than two billion people suffer from micronutrient deficiency – or hidden hunger – which reduces cognitive development, increases maternal and infant mortality and impacts health and productivity, which undermine efforts to end global poverty.

Join the #FutureFortified Global Summit on Food Fortification in Tanzania, 9-11 September 2015 – part of international efforts to reinvigorate interest, awareness and investment in food fortification. By fortifying staple foods and condiments with vitamins and minerals, we can reduce micronutrient deficiency and make billions of people healthier, smarter and more productive. Food fortification is one of the least expensive and most effective nutrition interventions to tackle hidden hunger on a huge scale. The Summit will forge a vision and strategy for fortification to contribute to the Sustainable Development Goals and beyond.

The Summit will bring together experts from across a range of disciplines and include governments, academics, technical supporters, donors and beneficiaries.
