Based in the United States, Edesia is a non-profit company created in 2009 in partnership with Nutriset. Located in North Kingstown, Rhode Island, Edesia operates a new plant opened since 2016 to make Nutriset’s products for the treatment and prevention of malnutrition.
Edesia's mandate is to produce high quality ready-to-use foods, collaborate on research and development projects to improve distribution systems and optimize the use of RUFs, support local producers of ready-to-use foods in low-income countries, and advocacy initiatives.
Being an American non-profit, Edesia is able to strengthen collaborations with US-based nutrition research institutions and NGOs, and actively advocate with the US government to include more adapted and fortified essential nutrient products in international food aid programs.
