Between February 2020-December 2021, 2FAS supported the voluntary fortification of edible oil in Kazakhstan. 


The project was led by Kazakh Academy of Nutrition, and was made up of three main activities:


1.   The organisation of a national conference, which brought together government officials, the oil industry             and academia, to advocate for the fortification of vegetable oil with vitamins A and D. 


2.   A situation analysis of the oil industry throughout the country, to assess capacity for fortification, alongside       a study to understand the stability of vitamin A in sunflower oil. 


3.   A series of regional training workshops, to which representatives of all edible oil factories in the country            were invited, and in which the Ministry of Health participated.
