Nutrition Africa Investor Forum 

Nutrition Africa Investor Forum 


Malnutrition affects every country in the world and is highly prevalent in Africa where it affects one in two people. Nutrition is not only essential for human and economic development but is a smart investment that can give massive returns. From 16-17 October 2018, Sight and Life participated in the Nutrition Africa Investor Forum (NAIF) in Nairobi. NAIF was the first forum of its kind that brought together businesses, investors, donors, and the public sector to develop bold, fresh, holistic ideas on the food value chain and the role that the private sector can play in enhancing nutrition in Africa.



The Forum specifically focused on the role of Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) who are the largest providers of food in Africa yet they remained relatively untapped in the developing and scaling up of market-based solutions that could improve the consumption of nutritious foods, due to barriers such as accessing finance and marketing for nutritious foods. They are a key part of the puzzle in ensuring nutritious food products are available, affordable and accessible throughout Africa.


During NAIF, Sight and Life presented on OBAASIMA, an innovative and distinctive front-of-package seal that identifies fortified food products that provide a good source of 18 vitamins and minerals for women of reproductive age. Sight and Life also sponsored the food company Yumi Yogurt, a product of Emigoh Ghana, to attend the conference giving them the opportunity to pitch for capital investments that would enable them to join the OBAASIMA Seal. Stay tuned for more updates on these amazing companies on our website!


The Forum was hosted by the Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition (GAIN) together with Royal DSMSUN Business Network and African Business magazine.

For all devoted to nutrition.
