    At the Food Fortification Initiative (FFI), we are taking this World Flour Day to reflect on the millions of lives that you, the millers, have saved through food fortification. As the world finds itself entering a third year of the Covid-19 pandemic, we would like to focus on the good. When it comes to food fortification, good is not in short supply.

    Fortification requires the participation of committed millers to adhere to national standards and legislation on fortification. Though governments, civic advocacy groups, and development partners may start and strengthen fortification programs, millers add vitamin and mineral premix to flour and ensure flour is fortified to the needs and standards set by their country. Millers make fortification a reality.
