Statement of Commitments
In 2015, Bioanalyt commits to scaling up nutrition by empowering food producers, monitoring agencies, humanitarian organizations and government to use rapid test kits for mirconutrient testing. This is done by:
- Providing rapid test kits to ensure that populations in 20 countries receive adequate levels of nutrient in their food, in partnership with GAIN’s Large Scale Food Fortification Initiative. This makes an on the spot quality control possible and food producers as well as monitoring authorities are empowered to react faster to inadequate fortification levels prior to marketing non-nutritious foods to the population
- Building QA-QC capacity in countries through at least 10 trainings and workshops, targeted at- at least- 50 governments, monitoring agencies and food producers.
- Closing the nutrition data gap through supporting four fortification assessments and establishing a partnership with Groundwork LLC
With this, key knowledge about measuring nutrients will be disseminated to key stakeholders in 20 countries. Reach will be updated annually.
