Fortified. For Life.

For Prinova, this isn’t just fortification. This is a solution, a foundation, a lifeline.

There are no simple solutions to micronutrient deficiencies and the dangerous, life-threatening conditions they cause in at-risk populations around the globe. These conditions often harm the most vulnerable, especially young women and children (0-59 months). Each challenge requires a tailored approach: nutritionally, logistically, culturally.

Fortifying staple ingredients, such as flour, can help overcome these challenges. This is where Prinova can help.

Inherently versatile, flour can be made from corn, rice or wheat, and incorporated into applications to appeal to people everywhere. Along with cooking oils and other staple ingredients, flour can be fortified to target specific conditions. Time and again, flour has proven to be a superior, cost-effective delivery vehicle for custom nutrition.

Eminently scalable, we are one of the few partners who can provide everything from straight ingredients to custom premixes and flavours.

As a full-service premix company with an integrated distribution division, we offer unmatched ingredient access and supply chain assurance: better sourcing, better management and better value.

Nutrient premix expertise

Solving malnourishment challenges often requires the strategic integration of multiple nutrients. We can combine these ingredients into efficient, stable, cost-effective premixes, in oil or powder form. Our development team will work with millers, food

manufacturers and product developers to devise optimum solutions, including compliance with mandated, voluntary, or pilot projects.

Flour fortification experience

We are experts at fortifying wheat, maize and rice flour, as well as other staple food applications including cooking oils, spreads and margarines. Moreover, we are also equipped to develop samples, prototypes and other formulations to enhance development and production.

Quality, compliance and safety

In everything we do, safety is our first priority. Which means rigorous quality control at each production phase, strict attention to consistency, ability to meet the Indonesian National Standards (SNI) or any requested compliances (e.g., halal), and the highest standards of transparency and accuracy. All of our facilities operate under GFSI standards, and we routinely use external labs (including SGS, Eurofins and Covance) to confirm our standards.

Worldwide manufacturing facilities

Wherever nutrients are needed, Prinova can deliver through our strategic locations around the globe. Because we maintain our own ingredient inventories and premix facilities, we are able to respond quickly and meet any demand.
