Buhler AG and dsm-firmenich Volunteers Provide Fortification Training to Milling and Edible Oil Companies in Ethiopia

Fortifying foods that are already commonly consumed is of the most effective ways of tackling the micronutrient deficiencies that affect millions of people on the African continent.

PFS is grateful to four of our Africa-based volunteers from Buhler AG and dsm-firmenich who provided fortification training to members of the Ethiopian Millers Association and Edible Oil Association to support them to meet the National Fortification Standard. This was done in collaboration with the Ethiopia Food and Drug Authority and Standards Agency.

Over the course of three(3) days, Oreofe Odunsi, Rishan Elmneh and Kidist Tadesse, of dsm-firmenich and Biniam Tiezazu, from Buhler AG trained 32 millers and 29 edible oil companies on topics including microdoser installation and calibration, formulation and ratio adjustment of micronutrients to flour/oil and quality control testing and methodologies.
