Testing revealed that iodine levels in salt were within established guidelines at both the point of importation (60–80 mg/kg) and at the retail level (30–80 mg/kg). Fewer than 10% of samples exceeded mandated levels. Compliance with fortification standards for vitamin A fortified oil was also high. More than 90% of samples from retail locations contained vitamin A, with an aver- age content of 31 mg/kg – well within the recommend- ed range of 20–45 mg/kg. The high coverage with adequately vitamin A fortified oil is explained by two main factories, which supply 85–90% of Uganda’s oil market. Mr Afidra concluded that Uganda’s two-pronged compliance monitoring strategy has proven a practical means to conserve resources. In the future, the Food Control System will be complemented by greater household-level monitoring to further validate the quality, coverage, and utilization of these target foods.
