Recently the global TV program BBC Horizons profiled how Abbott nutrition scientists helped the international non-profit organization PATH to improve fortified rice – which has the potential to help more than 1 billion people worldwide.

With $1.5 million in funding support from the Abbott Fund, the partnership also has built local production capacity in India, where fortified grains will be produced by local businesses and rice millers – thus strengthening local distribution chains.
