Malnutrition

Malnutrition is associated with over HALF of the deaths of children under 5 in sub-Saharan Africa every year.  This is more than AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis combined.  At a time of rising food prices, food insecurity, drought and civil war, the need in the East African region is even more urgent.

A Global Solution - Plumpy’nut®

Industrial Revelation, a nonprofit 501(c)(3) corporation, has partnered with Nutriset, the world leader in the development of Plumpy’nut®, to produce a revolutionary solution to the silent crisis in Tanzania.

Plumpy’nut® is a ready-to-use therapeutic food, endorsed by the World Health Organization and UNICEF, and is proven to treat severe acute malnutrition with astounding success rates. It is an energy-dense paste made with peanuts, milk powder, sugar, vegetable oil and a fortified vitamin and mineral mixture. 

- Revolutionary because it does not need to be refrigerated or mixed with water – two things not readily available in the developing world.

- Revolutionary because it places the treatment at home with the mother instead of a costly hospital stay

- Revolutionary because it saves lives as if it were an essential medicine.

Local Production

Industrial Revelation is building a factory in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania to produce enough Plumpy’nut® to treat 100,000 severely malnourished children within the East African region.

Most of the ingredients can be sourced locally, prepared locally and distributed locally.  In a country rife with underemployment, and with 80% of the population involved in agriculture, it only makes sense to use internal resources to solve internal problems. It encourages self-sufficiency, sustainability, involves the community, and saves money and lives.

By mid-2010, Plumpy’nut® production will begin giving thousands of children a chance at survival and a healthy and productive life.  This will eliminate the hardest lesson a mother has to teach her child: how to live with hunger.
