In 2006, in response to high rates of pediatric malnutrition, the organization Partners in Health (PIH) created a highly nutritious, peanut-based, therapeutic food called Nourimanba. The product does not need to be mixed with water or require refrigeration, which is highly important for families without access to electricity or clean water sources.
In 2013, with support from the Kellogg Foundation, an 18,000 square foot production facility was built in the city of Mirebalais to produce 60,000 kilograms of Nourimanba each year. Production from this facility treats 6,000 cases of malnutrition annually.
