NAOF commited to ensuring voluntary fortification for nutrition

edible oilThe National Alliance for Edible Oil Fortification (NAOF) has reinforced its commitment towards creating an enabling environment for voluntary fortification, with the objective of meeting the nutritional requirements of the Indian population. The NAOF disclosed its commitment to this objective at the  2nd Stakeholder Consultation on Food Fortification held recently.

Towards achieving this objective, the NAOF will work on a three-pronged approach – First with consumer organisations to assess demand and create awareness on fortified foods (including edible oil); Second with state governments to leverage fortification as a complementary strategy to deliver needed micro-nutrients to the population and share best practices among states; and Third – create an enabling environment for industry to launch fortified foods to address consumer needs.
