I am Project Manager at a U.S. non-profit called Edesia: Global Nutrition Solutions. Our mission is to treat and prevent malnutrition through the use of Ready-to-Use Foods and other locally-appropriate solutions. We produce peanut-based ready-to-use therapeutic and supplementary foods, such as Plumpy'nut and Nutributter. Additionally, we support related research and the advancement and success of Ready-to-Use food producers in developing countries. We recognize that emergency nutrition interventions are necessary to treat acute situations, and yet we must be simultaneously striving toward prevention through responsible supplemental feeding and improvement of agricultural systems and supply chains.
If possible, I would like to attend the IFPRI International Conference in India, to be a part of the dialogue to encourage Nutrition, Health and Agriculture to continue to work together.
