This training for millers and regulatory officials in West Africa equipped key individuals with the necessary skills to train their peers in the multiple facets of flour fortification. The roles and responsibilities of each stakeholder were outlined, and the importance of developing standards, as well as monitoring and evaluation systems, was stressed. An emphasis was placed on including both industry and government leaders in the workshop so they received the same messages. A highlight of the workshop was a field visit to the Grands Moulins de Dakar, the largest flour mill in the region, where participants observed the mill’s quality control measures. The 76 participants represented flour and baking industries from 11 countries, and government officials from 18 countries.
