Last week 250 independent wheat flour millers in Pakistan’s province of Punjab voluntarily committed to start fortifying their flour.

The commitment, made at a seminar organised by the Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition (GAIN) and the Pakistan Flour Mills Association (PFMA) in collaboration with the Pakistan Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (PCSIR), follows a previous move by 34 Punjab flour mills earlier this year to also start voluntarily fortifying their flour.
