With 48% of Kenyans living under the poverty line, there is need to come up with innovations which will ensure the poor have access to nutritious foods at low cost.

Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition (GAIN) through its supply chain intervention programe is funding small and middle size enterprises (SMEs) to be able to provide more nutritious foods at affordable prices thus combating food insecurity and malnutrition in Nairobi.

Milk ATMs is an example where the poor urban population can access nutrient dense, pasteurized milk in small amounts at low cost.

Chicken is sold in portions so that customers could buy amounts based on the amount of money they have instead of buying the whole bird which is very expensive.

Providing proteins is vital since lack of adequate protein is the primary manifestation of energy malnutrition in developing countries.

農業生産、加工、販売、栄養、医療とつながるサプライチェーン、重要ですね!世界栄養報告2017でも取り上げられていますね。日本でも事例は数少ないです。ケニアの成功事例になるといいですね。
