Sanku Small-scale Fortification

Helping the people who need it most

Despite the increasing adoption of large-scale fortification programs as a means of addressing micronutrient malnutrition throughout the developing world, the majority of individuals living in rural and remote areas do not have access to centrally processed foods, and thus are denied the benefits of these efforts. Addressing this gap becomes critical when considering the fact that these populations are the most vulnerable and in the greatest need of strategies to combat micronutrient malnutrition.

Despite the increasing adoption of large-scale fortification programs as a means of addressing micronutrient malnutrition throughout the developing world, the majority of individuals living in rural and remote areas do not have access to centrally processed foods, and thus are denied the benefits of these efforts. Addressing this gap becomes critical when considering the fact that these populations are the most vulnerable and in the greatest need of strategies to combat micronutrient malnutrition.

With this in mind, Sanku has designed an effective technology and business model that will enable small and medium scale mills to cost-effectively and sustainably fortify their flour.

Our Sanku dosifier technology is in its 3rd generation of product design, and currently is the only small scale solution on the market.

With over 9 years of development and field-testing, we are now upgrading it with cellular capabilities, enabling remote monitoring of village-level mills across large regions.

Today, we provide over 350,000 people with fortified flour across East and Southern Africa, and expect to reach 1 million people by end of 2017.

The Sanku dosifier technology has been installed across 5 countries throughout East and Southern Africa: Tanzania, Rwanda, Kenya, Malawi, and Mozambique.
