Sanku Sanku is fundamentally changing nutrition in sub-Saharan Africa.

Africa is hardest hit by malnutrition. Most don’t have access to healthy foods, and every meal is primarily starchy flour. Lacking key nutrients, especially in a child’s diet, results in millions of people dying every year from preventable sicknesses.

We add nutrients that are scientifically proven to improve health and vitality, into the food Africans eat the most, via a game-changing dosifier technology and sustained through a creative business model.

Sanku monitors the miller’s use of the dosifier remotely through a cellular link, and visits the mill if the dosifier is not in use or needs repair, as well as to restock their nutrients.

Now it is easy for rural millers to produce quality fortified flour, and families can finally afford to buy and eat healthy food everyday (over 90% increase in Tanzania). Children get the key nutrients they need and lives are saved.

Already reaching 1 million people, Sanku is on pace to reach 100 million people and be fully sustained by 2025.
