The workshop's goal is to ensure the proper implementation of fortified salt production standards,

contributing to public health initiatives and preventing related health issues. Salt iodisation initiatives, dating back to 1971, have effectively mitigated iodine deficiency with ongoing efforts from NGOs, including Nutrition International.

Karachi's Role in Salt Production

With almost 70 percent of Sindh's salt produced in Karachi, the city plays a pivotal role. DG Agha Fakhar stressed the importance of obtaining an SFA license for those involved in the salt business.

Recognition of Excellence in Salt Fortification

The workshop concluded with DG SFA Agha Fakhar Hussain presenting certificates to participants, recognizing their commitment to advancing public health through fortified salt practices. Stay tuned for more updates as SFA continues its mission towards a healthier and iodine-sufficient Sindh!
