"The dream, would be for those factories one day to become their own form of economic stimulus in times of emergency, helping their countries climb out of crisis through the very act of producing their own aid." Navyn Salem- Executive Director

Why the PlumpyField Network?
Because nearly 195 million children around the world suffer from malnutrition. Nutriset launched an innovative initiative to contribute to nutritional autonomy.
The ability of a state, community or an individual to identify and procure, via sustainable systems, the nutrients needed by young children or other population groups at-risk for malnutrition.
The core of the network focuses on common values:
Sharing know-how, technology, and research initiatives
Mutual assistance through continuous dialogue between the members of the network
Sustainability by following the principles of sustainable development and the careful monitoring of financial stability
Quality and compliance with international standards
Functioning as a network:
Enables members to react more rapidly to nutritional emergencies
Facilitates work on chronic malnutrition in non-emergency periods
Boosts local economies, including activities associated with the production of raw materials
Favors the inclusion of ready-to-use food products in national food strategies
