CTA and GAIN Sign $250 K Memorandum to Build Business Capability

The Confederation of Business Associations (CTA) and the Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition (GAIN) signed this Tuesday, 22 November, a memorandum of understanding to support and mobilise the private sector to increase its participation, contribution and commitment in improving nutrition and the access of the Mozambican population to nutritious and safe food, including fortified food.

Chronic malnutrition is a public health problem in Mozambique, affecting up to 40% of children under 5 years of age. Therefore, CTA and GAIN aim to enable companies to provide more nutritious and safer products to improve nutrition.

Through this memorandum, CTA will receive $250,000 from GAIN to provide assistance to companies through programmes that promote the production of higher quality food.

The agreement includes strengthening the institutional capacity of CTA and provincial business delegations in matters of nutrition and food systems and respective advocacy, as well as a special focus to be given to the recovery of Cabo Delgado province’s food systems.

“CTA has taken an important step by realigning its agribusiness portfolio to ‘Agribusiness, food industry and nutrition portfolio’. This reformulation clearly shows the vision of the organisation’s leadership to act from production to the final consumer, ultimately seeking to ensure that diets are truly more diverse, abundant and easily accessible to all citizens,” said Gaspar Cuambe, director of GAIN in Mozambique.

For the president of the Confederation of Economic Associations of Mozambique, Agostinho Vuma, this act is a milestone and represents the consolidation of a partnership with GAIN, which has already existed for five years.
