Edesia
Ending malnutrition now.

undefined

Ready-to-use food manufacturer Edesia pays careful attention to shelf life. They have to. The life-saving peanut pastes they provide at cost to organizations like USAID/USDA, UNICEF, and the World Food Programme transform the lives of malnourished children whose families can't source nutritious food.

THE BIG PROBLEM

Millions of children die needlessly every year because of malnutrition. In fact, malnutrition in some form affects over 220 million children worldwide.

 

A BITE-SIZED SOLUTION

Over 90% of children diagnosed with severe acute malnutrition who receive Plumpy'Nut® as part of their treatment plan make a full recovery. And treating malnutrition doesn’t just save lives, it strengthens families and local economies.

SHELF STABLE REQUIREMENTS

SHELF STABLE THERAPEUTIC FOOD

Edesia’s best-known product, Plumpy’Nut®, is a ready-to-use therapeutic food (RUTF) made from peanuts, vegetable oil, milk powder, sweet whey, sugar, vitamins, and minerals. It includes no water.

 

SAVING LIVES IN REMOTE LOCATIONS

The beauty of this product is that it's ready to use and it's shelf stable. Because it needs no preparation and no refrigeration, it can help save lives in the most remote, inhospitable places on earth.

WHY HELP NOW?

"Everything is worth it if we're literally able to help be a part of saving kids' lives. The daily challenges which exist in any workplace become manageable because we are united in the mission of saying that no child should die from starvation in this day and age."

“The most common recipients are babies, 6 months to 24 months. They’re the ones waiting for it, and we need to make sure they’re getting exactly what they need.”

- Maria Kasparian, Executive Director | Edesia
