Ahmedabad-based Adani Wilmar's Fortune SuPoshan project has been highly successful and has contributed to a significant reduction in malnutrition indicators, an assessment report of the project has found.
The findings have come when the country is celebrating September month as the Nutrition Month or Poshan Maah to spread awareness related to health and nutrition.
Launched in May 2016, the Fortune SuPoshan project, which is executed on the ground by Adani Foundation, the CSR arm of Adani Group, is a mission against Malnutrition and Anemia.
The project will continue its operation at its existing sites by reaching the target group 0-5 age children, adolescent girls, and women of reproductive age.
All 239 villages where the Fortune SuPoshan project was operational in the first phase have shown a significant reduction in all three malnutrition indicators, i.e. severe acute malnourishment, moderate acute malnourishment, and underweight, for children aged 0-5, according to the report.
“It is most gratifying to see the significant impact the Fortune SuPoshan project has had in improving nutrition levels among young children across its sites. The project has been expanded to more sites now, and Adani Wilmar is committed to contributing to make India a healthy country,” said Angshu Mallick, MD and CEO, Adani Wilmar.
