Enabling small-scale maize millers to contribute to the global fight against malnutrition
Maize is the most popular staple food in Tanzania. It is also an excellent vehicle to deliver vital micronutrients to vulnerable populations. Sanku has undertaken this challenge and is today providing fortification technology and support to over 100 maize millers in Tanzania, reaching 1 million people. To monitor the fortification process, Sanku partnered with BioAnalyt and in August 2018 has successfully launched a new testing facility for fortified products. Equipped with qualitative iron spot tests and quantitative iCheck Iron, it will enable Sanku to better support the millers and ensure that adequate levels of micronutrients are delivered to consumers.
