MICRONUTRIENT FORTIFICATION INDEX (MFI): TERMS OF REFERENCE (TOR) FOR THE METHODOLOGY AUDIT CONSULTANT
1. INTRODUCTION TO THE MFI PROGRAM
Food fortification, in which essential micronutrients are added during food processing, has been widely identified as a cost-effective strategy for addressing micronutrient malnutrition at scale. Undernutrition can lead to lifelong consequences, increasing the risk of impaired physical and cognitive development, and of diminished productive capacity. TechnoServe’s(TNS) Strengthening African Processors for Food Fortification (SAPFF) project takes a holistic approach to addressing this challenge by working to strengthen the enabling environment that promotes the competitive, healthy and effective production of fortified foods.
