Food systems arise from the complex interactions of all the activities and actors involved in transforming environmental, agricultural, and manufacturing inputs into outcomes of food and nutrition security and health.1,2 By considering the interactions of all involved sectors, food systems have the potential and capacity to deliver adequate availability, access, utilization, and supply stability of both macro- and micro nutrients that contribute to food and nutrition security.

STABLISHING NATIONAL PREMI X SUPPLY SYSTEMS
Making fortification programs truly sustainable Food systems arise from the complex interactions of all the activities and actors involved in transforming environmental, agricultural, and manufacturing inputs into outcomes of food and nutrition security and health.1,2 By considering the interactions of all involved sectors, food systems have the potential and capacity to deliver adequate availability, access, utilization, and supply stability of both macro- and micronutrients that contribute to food and nutrition security.
Currently, in many low- and middle-income countries, food systems deliver narrow diets of staple foods that lack key micronutrients. Large-scale food fortification has emerged as one of the most feasible, cost-effective, and sustainable evidence-based interventions to address population-level vitamin and mineral deficiencies, estimated to affect hundreds of millions of the world’s population. 3 Food fortification also improves food and nutrition security by providing greater availability of, and access to, micronutrients necessary for health and well-being. However, in order for fortification programs to be truly sustainable, they need to be embedded within food systems along with the inputs and resources required to ensure the quality and safety of fortified foods. This includes consistent access to quality-assured vitamin and mineral premix.
