2018 was a landmark year in our efforts to advance crop biofortification as a solution to hidden hunger.
In collaboration with our many partners we:
- Strengthened the evidence base that biofortified crops measurably improve micronutrient status and health
- Advanced efforts to sustain biofortification’s impact—by the end of 2018, 21 governments had included biofortification in their national agricultural and/or nutrition strategies
- Developed and disseminated more than 290 varieties of 12 staple food crops, benefiting more than 50 million people to date
HarvestPlus wishes our friends, supporters, and partners the very best in 2019. We look forward to working together to improve people’s lives worldwide through better nutrition.
With gratitude to our many partners,
Founder and CEO, HarvestPlus
