  15. Community nutrition outreach and training on Micro-Nutrient fortifications program sponsored by WFP

Training on micro-nutrient fortification for rural women in poor communities is part of the scale-up of the community-based milling and fortification project in Northern Ghana. The project implemented by the World Food Programme aimed at reducing malnutrition in Northern Ghana. Training was organized for twenty- seven (27) women based groups in ten districts of the three northern regions of Ghana. The CSIR- Food Research Institute was contracted by WFP as part of this project to transfer the technology of flour fortification with micronutrient premix.A participatory approach was adopted to help the beneficiaries understand and appreciate the
intervention to tackle malnutrition in the communities. This was done in collaboration with the Engineering
Unit of the Food Processing Division. A total of about 1,211 women were trained. Detailed
report is available.

Food Research Institute is located Adjacent to Ghana Standards Authority, Near Gulf House, Tetteh Quarshie Interchange, Accra, Ghana. We are open to the general public from Monday to Friday 7:30am - 5:00pm, excluding holidays.
