SFA DG Urges Adherence to Fortification Standards in Flour and Salt Processing

Agha Fakhar Hussain, the Director General of Sindh Food Authority (SFA), underscored the responsibility of all SFA operational teams in ensuring the fortification process in flour and salt during his visit to the Sunridge flour mill alongside a team from Nutrition International. Notably, Nutrition International has provided micro-nutrients to several flour mills and atta chakkis to monitor zinc and iron levels in the flour.

DG SFA Agha Fakhar Hussain directed operational deputy directors to rigorously check manufacturers' documentation, conduct random sampling from various batches and locations, utilize iodine test kits, ensure regular visits to production sites, provide training and awareness sessions to staff, stay updated on the latest methods and technology in the field, maintain close contact with health authorities, and establish a feedback mechanism.
