December 2-3 – A celebration of Africa’s progress of fortifying flour in industrial mills will be held prior to the IAOM-MEA meeting. In 2011, only seven countries in Africa were fortifying at least 75% of their industrially milled wheat flour with folic acid. Now at least 19 countries have reached that level of wheat flour fortification. Organized by the Smarter Futures partnership, the event will begin with a cocktail reception on 2 December and include a program on 3 December. The Wednesday program will end in time for you to attend the IAOM-MEA opening event. For details see
