Environmentally and socially responsible production of nutritious milk products
NutriFood Tech is a social enterprise in Uganda at the forefront of nutrition-sensitive food processing. It is currently pioneering the production of probiotic fermented foods, mainly yoghurt, in communities around Uganda. NutriFood Tech runs and operates four yoghurt processing factories with a weekly combined volume of over 5,000 litres.
It does so through training, market development and youth and women engagement to produce highly nutritious yoghurts on a small scale. These groups also receive equity shares in the processing factories, thereby benefiting economically from employment and ownership.
Hospitals aid in the promotion of probiotic yoghurt to patients, including malnourished children and HIV/AIDS patients.
Local schools support NutriFood Tech by involving it as a supplier for nutritious school lunch projects.
Retail outlets promote NutriTech Food products and provide community access to probiotic yoghurts.
Uganda Industrial Research Insitute performs periodic quality control and safety checks on the yoghurts.
