Today marks the celebration of International School Meals Day
For over 55 years, we have been supporting our customers and public stakeholders in the development of school feeding and nutrition programmes around the world. Food security and nutrition remains a major challenge. 821 million people in the world are malnourished and 1 out of 5 children still suffer from stunted growth.
Our technology has played a key role in providing safe nutrition to school children in areas where there is limited access. In 2018, 66 million children in 59 countries received milk or other nutritious beverages in Tetra Pak packages in schools.
Tetra Pak West Africa and its customer CHI Limited, one of Nigeria's most respected companies and leading JNSD, LDP and snacks producer, have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to explore appropriate food and beverage opportunities to fight child malnutrition in Nigeria. The MoU was signed during Dennis Jönsson's recent visit to West Africa.
"Child nutrition is important to our country's future and being a proud Nigerian company, we are committed to putting in our best to build a healthy and brighter Nigeria," remarked C. G. Vink, Chairman of Chi Limited.
