Within the ongoing OIC International Health, Agriculture, and Nutrition Development for Sustainability (HANDS) program in Liberia, this grant activity encouraged the use of a locally produced fortified food product called Super Gari as a means to meet populations’ nutrition needs, strengthened the capacity of Super Gari producers, and promoted consumption and market expansion across Liberia. Super Gari is a fortified product made of cassava, soy flour, and micronutrients with a blend of protein, carbohydrates, and micronutrients formulated to prevent malnutrition among pregnant and lactating women and children under 2 years old.
