NutriGo in China starts pilot phase : a new journey for social business

NutriGo project in China is the union of Dumex (biggest Baby Food Company in Danone), One Foundation, NPI Foundation and ILSI-FP China (a government nutrition body) and danone.communities to fight malutrition of babies in rural China through education and the distribution of a fortified complementary product.


Most partners of the NutriGo project gathered In December 2011 in Enshi district of the Hubei province in China to sign the main contracts and launch officially the pilot phase.


Enshi district is 4M people and 6 counties, 2 cities, 1/3 below poverty line - 1200 RMB per year (that is less than 1€ per day per person). Director Zhu of ILSI-FP, one of China's best nutrition experts explains to me how severe malnutrition has almost disappeared from China in 20 years; however, anemia and malnutrition are still prevalent; "Before there was no food; now there is food but people lack the education; we see complementary food as a fast solution to improve the nutrition but the real task will be to educate the people about good nutrition"
