Nutrimix, a low cost supplementary food, has been developed to provide nutrition to the malnourished children attending the Institutional Services of CINI i.e., Thursday Clinic and Out Patient Department (OPD). Apart from that various preparations of this mixture are given to malnourished children admitted at the NRC (Nutritional Rehabilitation Center) and Emergency Ward (EW) and also distributed in outreach malnutrition intervention activities undertaken by the Institute.

 

Nutrimix was born out of a scientific conviction deeply embedded into the Indian social context. A nutritionist from Australia and Dr. Samir Chaudhuri– the two cofounders of CINI took up a project in late ‘70s to conceptualize a proper child nutrition supplement that would be

 

  1. Made out of easily available ingredients
  2. Low cost
  3. Easy to prepare at home

 

The outcome of the project was very encouraging. With the help of Prof Sunit Mukherjee, the former head of Food Technology Department, Jadavpur University and the present Chairman of CINI, we have been in a constant endeavor to improve Nutrimix.

In the last 39 years, the journey of Nutrimix has been supported by many. World Bank has helped us to modernize the production process through a large sponsorship. We have also been assisted by the experts from IIM Calcutta to strengthen the value chain of CINI Nutrimix.

 

Our philosophy for Nutrimix is little different from that of many product companies – we want the product to contribute to the  Government’s fight against malnutrition, we want Nutrimix to improve the  economic condition of its value partners – the  SHGs (Self Help Groups) involved in the production and distribution of Nutrimix and we are committed to align Nutrimix to CINI’s core mission of  “Sustainable development in health, nutrition, education and protection of child, adolescent and woman in need”. We, at CINI, truly feel delighted when we find Nutrimix used in various Government initiatives.
