Thank you for your interest in fortification. The Food Fortification Initiative (FFI), formerly the Flour Fortification Initiative, is an international partnership working to improve health by advocating for fortification in industrial grain mills. We specialize in wheat and maize flour and rice.
The support we provide through multi-sector collaborations includes:
- Advocacy resources on the benefits of fortification
- Technical assistance in planning, implementing and monitoring fortification programs
- Tracking progress at the country and global levels
We primarily support national stakeholders in the public, private and civic sectors. Key leaders are government officials, industry leaders, civic sector advocates, and staff of non-governmental organizations.
The nutrients most commonly used in post-harvest grain fortification are iron and folic acid, a B vitamin. Other nutrients that can be added are zinc, vitamin A, vitamin D, and other B vitamins such as niacin, thiamine, riboflavin and B 12. Learn about the nutritional benefits under Why Fortify?
An Executive Management Team representing global leaders in the public, private, and civic sectors provides strategic direction to FFI. Our Global Secretariat has a small staff at Emory University adjacent to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta, Georgia, USA. Individual staff members are based in Belgium, Canada, India, Indonesia, The Netherlands, Thailand, and Uganda.
