In January 2013, the Islamic Republic of Pakistan joined the SUN Movement with a letter of commitment from Muhammed Ayub, the Senior Chief Nutrition, Planning and Development Division in the Prime Minister’s Office. To support the government’s multistakeholder efforts, engagement with the private sector began in 2015 with the National Fortification Alliance as a key contributor. Today, with support from the Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition, the World Food Programme and other partners, Pakistan’s SUN Business Network continues to grow from strength to strength in new areas and with new partnerships.

SBN Pakistan’s Business Engagement Strategy has been formulated for the development of local strategies to address the issue of malnutrition. It is a road-map for engaging businesses in improving nutritional outcomes in Pakistan involving all relevant stakeholders. It will also provide guidance on policy and strategic environments and outlining strategic development & recommendations in key thematic areas.
Current Network Priorities
- Expand membership of local companies – see Maximising the Role of SMEs for Improving Nutrition in Pakistan
- Deepen business engagement in thematic areas – e.g. TA to SMEs to Remove Industrially Produced Trans Fatty Acids
- Demonstration of workforce nutrition among SBN member companies – see Workplace Nutrition for Productivity & Improved Nutrition
Examples of multistakeholder/multisectoral partnerships
- GAIN is hosting the secretariat and WFP is a co-convener
- Businesses members have shown commitment to jointly start nutrition project partnership with GAIN/WFP/Govt. Pakistan
