This photograph was captured in a medium-sized maize flour mill in Tanzania. The facility specialized in the process of fortifying maize flour, using a specially adapted machine referred to as a dorsifier, which is able to weigh the maize, as it enters the milling equipment, and dispense the correct amount of fortificants into the flour, as it is being processed. In Tanzania, the majority of the population consume maize flours, produced by small, or medium-sized mills, rather than industrially produced flours. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is working with several partners in the country, to support the installation of dosifiers among small, and medium-sized enterprises, while providing the associated technical assistance to millers.
