Mission

Malnutrition Matters believes that empowerment of local people to take control of their nutritional needs is fundamental. An important part of this control is through access to appropriate food processing technologies that enable inexpensive, local processing of locally available fruits, vegetables, grains and legumes.

Programs

Programs address protein and micro-nutrient deficiency by providing at least 200 ml of micro-nutrient enriched soymilk to beneficiaries every day. The non-electric VitaGoat has been chosen because it is ideally suited to the non-electrified environment of the poorest rural villages that have the highest rates of malnutrition. The technology being used is a set of mechanical components collectively called the VitaGoat: a boiler, a stainless-steel cooker, a cycle grinder and a filter press.
