Ready-to-Use Food Production

Ready-to-Use Food Production

VALID Nutrition Malawi (VNM) develops and manufactures a range of ready-to-use foods (RUFs) for organisations involved in the fight against acute and chronic malnutrition at its factory in Lilongwe. These RUFs are highly fortified and nutritious oil-based pastes. Meeting the highest standard of quality and hygiene, the factory can produce up to 1,500 metric tonnes per annum.

VALID Nutrition works closely with local governments, development agencies and NGOs to increase access to its products.

The need in Malawi and throughout Southern Africa for VNM’s products is now greater than the current supply. We plan to further expand our manufacturing capacity and export our products to neighbouring countries with similar malnutrition challenges.
