Description and results


The project aims to support the World Food Programme (WFP) in the fight against hunger. WFP is partnering with the private sector, agriculture producers, African governments and other stakeholders to support the establishment of commercially sustainable factories in Ethiopia and Rwanda to produce Supercereal Plus, a fortified cereal that responds specifically to the nutritional needs of children aged 6-24 months. Project activities include: (1) purchasing Supercereal Plus from the three factories for five years to be used for WFP operations; and (2) using Supercereal Plus a locally-produced product in its nutrition programmes in 11 African countries.

Expected results

The expected intermediate outcome for this project is: increased use of locally produced Supercereal Plus by WFP in its nutritional programming in Africa. The expected ultimate outcome is: improved nutrition of 4.1 million children in the following 11 African countries Burundi, Djibouti, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Ethiopia, Kenya, Rwanda, Somalia, South Sudan, Sudan, Tanzania and Uganda.
