A $210,000 grant to test a new food supplement in Malawi that can be made with local ingredients and which is intended to reduce the cost of combating acute malnutrition in children.
If successfully trialed, Valid’s innovation has the potential to be a more cost-effective way to treat malnutrition. Cost-savings could lead development partners to increase the number of children they treat, while local sourcing could also improve the livelihoods of smallholder farmers.
Potential to scale.
Valid has significant potential to scale the innovation directly and to spur further innovation and local production elsewhere. The partnership assembled between Valid and Ajinomoto is strong.Apply for funding
