The government will spend close to Sh5 billion in a multipronged initiative to improve the country's food and nutrition security.
The five-year programme seeks options that increase food availability and promote greater access to adequate and nutritious food, therefore improving livelihoods.
Apart from the mandatory maize flour fortification, the Agriculture ministry is in talks with millers to start blending different kinds of flours to provide food that has all rounded ingredients.
Agriculture Secretary Anne Onyango said her ministry is focusing on developing strategies of increasing food production, strengthening distribution and marketing systems, and developing reliable storage systems.
She spoke during the ongoing National Agrinutrition Conference in Nairobi, where she represented Agriculture Cabinet Secretary Willy Bett.
Fortification is described as the deliberate addition of micronutrients to improve nutritional quality of food supply that assists humans to enjoy optimal metabolism and normal growth.
