Food fortification is the process of enriching foods with micro nutrients.
You can take a product such as children's cereal and add vitamins, minerals, fibres, iron etc and all of a sudden the product becomes more marketable due to the increased nutrition content which is on trend with consumer demand.
I'm working with one of the market leaders in food fortifications who work with global players in the beverage, cereal, confectionery, infant food, sports nutrition industries.
Think juices with added B vitamins, protein enriched waters, cereals with a label full of micronutrients.
If you see these on a supermarket shelf then chances are that they use a premix developed by this company.
