Malnutrition is a serious public health problem, with approximately 2 billion people suffering from micronutrient malnutrition and another 800 million facing calorie deficiency. Stunting and anemia numbers for the state of Gujarat, India, stand at 38.5% and 54.9% respectively, while the same for Tapi district stand at 35.9% and 54.4% respectively. It was against this backdrop that a consortium of partner organizations led by the Tata-Cornell Institute for Agriculture and Nutrition (TCI) took up this project to address iron deficiency anemia and related micronutrient deficiencies in 15 villages in Songadh block of Tapi district. The project was designed to leverage women’s empowerment and entrepreneurship for creating a sustainable business model for the supply and consumption of essential micronutrients through village-level flour fortification strategies. At the end of the first phase of the project, about 69% of all households had consumed the product at least once.
