PATH, Abbott and the Abbott Fund Form Innovative Partnership to Prevent Malnutrition
Date:11/3/2011

MUMBAI, India and NEW DELHI, Nov. 3, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- PATH, Abbott (NYSE: ABT) and the Abbott Fund today announced a partnership to address malnutrition by advancing the rice fortification market in India. Currently, 200 million people suffer from hunger and malnutrition in India, more than any other country in the world. Rice is the staple food for 65 percent of the population, providing a significant opportunity to address malnutrition through rice fortification. The partnership will seek to initially benefit 500,000 people through India's public-sector food distribution programs, with the longer-term goal of expanding the broader market for fortified rice.

To advance the partnership, the Abbott Fund has provided a three-year, $1.5 million grant for refining and scaling up the production and distribution of fortified rice using PATH's Ultra Rice® fortification technology. In addition, Abbott nutrition scientists will work with PATH to further optimize the Ultra Rice formulation in order to reduce costs and enhance the nutritional value of the grains. Abbott experts also will help PATH to develop appropriate quality assurance systems at rice miller sites to ensure production of high-quality fortified rice. PATH will simultaneously work to strengthen the local supply of fortified grains through partnerships with local industry, including Usher Agro Ltd., one of the leading rice mills in India, with whom PATH has just signed a letter of intent.

Building on earlier introduction efforts, PATH plans to expand the distribution of fortified rice within India's public-sector food programs, including the Mid-Day Meal Scheme, which serves school-aged children; the Integrated Child Development Scheme, which serves women and young children; and the Public Distribution System, which provides subsidized commodities to families below the poverty level. Each year, the India
