This presentation by TechnoServe presents the organization's strategy for improving nutrition through its work with the private sector. Five strategies are outlined: nutritional reviews, food fortification, commercialization of nutritious food, crop diversification, and encouraging embedded nutritional services by value chain actors. The presentation briefly examples two examples of how this strategy could be applied. The first is through working with food processors in Eastern African to upgrade their practices, while the second is using women-owned grain mills in Mozambique as hubs for other nutritional interventions.
