Smarter Futures is a project which provides technical support and training for flour millers, government food control staff, and other stakeholders in Africa with regard to fortification of wheat and maize flour with vitamins and minerals. Adding vitamins and minerals to flour is economically viable and cost effective. Improving the nutritional value of people’s diets through fortification of flour will improve people’s health and well-being and lead to smarter futures.
