Who are we ?
Fight against malnutrition, a founding mandate
As a player in the fight against malnutrition throughout the world, we have set ourselves the mission of developing innovative solutions to treat and prevent malnutrition, particularly among the most vulnerable populations such as children, pregnant and breastfeeding women, the elderly and others.
This mandate is enshrined in Nutriset’s Extended Social Purpose: it guides all our strategies and facilitates an innovative mode of governance between all our stakeholders.
For almost 40 years, our teams have been developing unique expertise to support stakeholders in the field and achieve the United Nations’ SDG 2, Zero Hunger. The synergy between our different businesses means that we can offer a wide range of nutritional solutions, with high production capacity and rapid delivery to over 100 countries.
Our products are distributed by Nutriset partners such as UNICEF, the World Food Programme (WFP), Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF), Action Contre la Faim (ACF) and government programmes.
A high-capacity factory
We have developed a state-of-the-art manufacturing process that pushes the limits of efficiency, while complying with the strictest food safety standards. For several years now, we have been digitally transforming our factory to improve our productivity and know-how so that we can reach even more people who are malnourished or at risk of malnutrition.
Member of Nutriset Group
We implement the Nutriset Group‘s nutritional strategy through the production, optimisation and distribution of the products in its catalogue. We are constantly striving to find new solutions to combat malnutrition in an ever-changing environment.
NEARLY 40 YEARS OF EXPERTISE
The Nutriset birth
In the 1970s, Michel Lescanne was a young agricultural engineer who was keenly aware of the debates on development in African countries. When he began his career at Mamie Nova, he decided to devote his research to nutritional products for malnourished children.
In 1986, Michel Lescanne founded Nutriset to produce and distribute effective nutritional solutions based on his research.
A network of producers
Nutriset is part of the PlumpyField® network, which currently includes around ten producers worldwide. This original approach makes Nutriset Group and the PlumpyField® network world leaders in the sector, and one of the leading suppliers to Unicef and the World Food Programme (WFP).
