Vitamins Angels is working to combat undernutrition
Fermenta Biotech, a driving force in propagating vitamin D awareness in India, has joined hands with Vitamin Angels. Through their partnership, they are determined to solve the fundamental problem of undernutrition-a widespread challenge, especially in rural areas.
Undernutrition, also known as "hidden hunger", occurs when individuals consume enough calories to survive, but the foods they eat lack adequate nutritional value. Poverty, food insecurity, lack of opportunity, limited resources, and even political instability can impact a child's or mother's nutritional status. Children under five, pregnant women, and new mothers are the most vulnerable to undernutrition.
Vitamins Angels is working to combat undernutrition through a comprehensive approach that starts with vitamin supplementation and includes support for breastfeeding women, deworming, and more.
"It is a privilege for Fermenta Biotech to be able to support the global endeavors of the nonprofit organization, Vitamin Angels," says Mr Prashant Nagre, chief executive officer of Fermenta Biotech. He added, "It feels great to join Vitamin Angels' compassionate initiative and be able to make a difference towards health and wellbeing of thousands of people the world over. Our motto is to discover, develop and deliver futuristic health solutions that help embrace a well-nourished life. Vitamin Angels is a perfect partner in that endeavor.
"We are so pleased to partner with Fermenta Biotech," said Mr Howard Schiffer, president and founder of Vitamin Angels. He added, "Their support is essential to the work that Vitamin Angels is doing in India and around the world. We are grateful for their support and look forward to a long partnership."
