Business and malnutrition: opportunities and challenges for the food industry in reaching the poor

This special report discusses the main investment hurdles and constraints in fighting malnutrition at the global and local levels and ways to deliver inclusive and sustainable business solutions that improve nutrition.

GAIN and WBI launched the GAIN Business Alliance to explore new business models, best practices, and sustainable approaches in the fight against malnutrition. It brings together a range of business actors, including global and local companies and business associations to discuss ways to engage business in the fight against malnutrition.  

The experience to date underscores the importance and need for development agencies and donors to continue to support business solutions and, thus, maximize productivity of those that are vulnerable. The main goal is to create long term sustainability and reduce the number of those whose health and livelihoods are undermined by nutrition.
