UNICEF provides a market supply and outlook update for multiple micronutrient powder (MNP).

The rapid increase in country home fortification programme introductions using MNP accounts for a 10-fold increase over the past five years. 

However, variance in forecasts, a short product shelf life, production on a made-to-order basis and recent quality issues have contributed to longer lead times for delivery. 

A new tender to be launched in January 2014 will seek to expand the MNP supplier base and support regional production development.
