what is plumpyfield?

PlumpyField is a network of independent producers who manufacture ready-to-use nutritional solutions right in the countries where they are most needed.
These products are used in the treatment and prevention of malnutrition, and comply with the highest international quality standards. 
By sourcing locally, these members sustainably contribute to the social and economic development on their countries and to the fight against malnutrition.

Partners for nutritional autonomy

The PlumpyField network now includes 7 partners in developing countries as well as a non-profit organization based in the United States. 
The introduction of the local manufacture of Plumpy® et Enov® range products improves the response time to nutritional emergencies, makes it easier to tackle chronic malnutrition outside emergency periods, boosts local economies such as raw material production sectors  and fosters the incorporation of ready-to-use nutritional supplements in national nutrition strategies.
Moreover, supported by Nutriset, a number of partners in the PlumpyField network are involved in projects to set up innovative distribution systems for products aimed at the prevention of malnutrition.
