The project will produce fortified blended food to feed 700,000 children annually, supporting the prevention and treatment of malnutrition among the most vulnerable population in Rwanda. If consumed on a regular basis, these maize-based fortified cereal products for infants can help prevent chronic malnutrition. The project will also increase access to high-quality nutritional products among African urban and rural populations.
Improved Incomes & Direct Jobs
The project will support additional income opportunities for 12,000 farmers that supply raw material (maize and soy) to the plant. The processing plant will also provide employment to more than 235 full-time employees.
This project is expected to reach 12,000 farmers in Rwanda and to produce enough fortified blended food to feed 700,000 children annually.
