EnRICH has developed a unique system to fortify grains at the local mill level. We have adapted an essential part of the artisanal milling system to make it simple for the miller to add vitamins and minerals to the grains his customers bring in, without significantly altering his operating paradigm. Recognizing that the Western “centrally measured, centrally mixed” paradigm is ineffective in Nepal, and that the current “locally measured, locally mixed” paradigm is too expensive, we adopt a “centrally measured, locally mixed” approach where fortificant packets are distributed to rural millers who simply add them to their customers’ grain before milling.
