Staple Food Fortification
Fortified for Life

Creating a Healthier World Through Staple Food Fortification

At Prinova, we help develop tailored solutions for micronutrient deficiencies in at-risk populations around the world. As a proud member of the Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition (GAIN), we support the vision of the Food Fortification Initiative and help to supply the World Food Programme and other development organisations.

 

Global Nutritional Impact

There are no simple solutions to micronutrient deficiencies and the life-threatening conditions they cause in at-risk populations around the globe. These conditions often harm the most vulnerable, especially young women and children. Each challenge requires a tailored approach: nutritionally, logistically, and culturally.

Staple Food Fortification

Fortifying staple foods can help overcome micronutrient deficiency challenges. Time and again, fortified flour and rice have proven to be superior, cost-effective delivery vehicles for custom nutrition, including iron, zinc, folic acid, and B vitamins. These nutrients reduce the risk of neural tube defects in infants and help prevent anaemia in the human body. 

Part of the Solution

At Prinova, we are committed to advancing human nutrition. We are a nutrition supplier of choice for non-governmental organisations, suppliers, manufacturers, millers, and related agencies worldwide. We are proud to apply our expertise, connections, and capabilities to global nutrition solutions.  

Solving malnourishment challenges often requires the strategic integration of multiple nutrients. We are experts at premixes that combine ingredients into efficient, stable, and cost-effective powder and liquid forms. Our development team works with millers, food manufacturers, and product developers to devise optimum solutions, including compliance with mandated, voluntary, or pilot projects. 

We are one of the most trusted names in the industry, bringing deep knowledge of the science and business of nutrition. Eminently scalable, we are one of the few partners who can provide everything from single ingredients to custom nutrient premixes. Strong technical expertise, including micronising and specification-based particle size enhancement, is guaranteed.

Along with cooking oils and other staple ingredients, flour can be fortified to target specific conditions. Leverage our expertise in creating fortified wheat flour, maize, and rice flour, as well as other staple food applications, including cooking oils, spreads, and margarines. We are also equipped to develop samples, prototypes, and other formulations to enhance development and production.

By working with us, you gain access to a world-leading supplier of vitamins, amino acids, and food additives such as sweeteners, preservatives, and plant proteins. We have direct relationships with leading suppliers to ensure continuous supply and stable pricing. As a full-service premix company with an integrated distribution division, we offer unmatched ingredient access and supply chain assurance for better sourcing, better management, and better value.

Wherever nutrients are needed, we can deliver by utilising our strategic locations around the globe. Because we maintain our own ingredient inventories and premix facilities, we can respond quickly and meet any demand. With facilities in Europe, China, and the United States, we provide global manufacturing solutions.

In everything we do, quality, compliance, and safety come first. This includes rigorous quality control at each production phase, strict attention to consistency, and meeting the Indonesian National Standards (SNI). We will also meet any requested compliances (e.g., halal). Our facilities operate under Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) standards, and we routinely use external labs (including SGS, Eurofins, and Covance) to confirm the highest standards of quality, transparency, and accuracy.
