Tackling Hidden Hunger
HarvestPlus has set itself the ambitious goal of improving the nutritional status of 500 million persons through the introduction of staple crops biofortified with vitamins and minerals.
Aidenvironment was asked to develop a strategy for the launch of the biofortified seeds. As a foundation for the launching program, studies were made of the existing value chains for 7 staple crops in 6 countries.
The program, an initiative of the Consultative Group on International Agricultural Research (CGIAR), receives core funding from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
