Earlier this week, Courtney and I traveled from Guatemala to Nicaragua to continue our efforts in Central America. We met with our partners, Cargill and the Fabretto Foundation, to discuss current and future opportunities for soy-based solutions to malnutrition in Nicaragua.
Our work in the country began with an early childhood nutrition effort in the Cusmapa area. Partnered with Fabretto, we introduced FortiSoy, a nutrient-dense early childhood feeding supplement.
Fabretto has three entities which are located in the United States, Nicaragua, and Spain. They all share one mission- to enable impoverished Nicaraguan children and their families to break the cycle of poverty and reach their full potential. FortiSoy allows infants and young children in Nicaragua to get the nutrition they need at the time in their lives that they need it the most, building a healthy and strong foundation for their well being in the future.
We are now looking forward to discussing school feeding and nutrition education opportunities targeted at areas that can still benefit from increased knowledge and improved nutrition with Cargill.
