Sustainable Nutrition International’s bioactive nutrition programs for remediating chronic malnutrition in infants was highlighted in the ‘Humanitarian Investor Forum’ cosponsored by Nixon Peabody and the United States Patent and Trademark Office on August 14, 2014 in Santa Clara, California. Dr. Glenn H. Sullivan, who accepted the 2013 ‘Patents for Humanity Award’ for Intermark Partners Strategic Management, the developers of the pioneering technology for which the award was received, presented the program plans for transferring the Company’s pioneering technology and bioactive nutrition formulations to nutrient deficit regions in Central America and beyond. This transfer will be accomplished through an exclusive non-profit bearing license agreement awarded to Sustainable Nutrition International for humanitarian development purposes.
Early stage nutritional deficiencies that result in chronic malnutrition and stunted physical and mental development impact nearly 165 million children worldwide. Current food security programs have not effectively reversed this trend in a sustainable manner. The solution to remediating chronic malnutrition is nutraceutical nutrition formulations that are readily bioavailable to infants in their early development stages, starting with the pregnant mother’s nutritional supplementation and through the first 6-9 months of lactation. The results of SNI’s 2012-14 field clinical trials clearly demonstrate the significant benefits derived from such nutritional supplementation in remediating chronic malnutrition, and thereby establishing the foundation for normal physical and cognitive development of the infant in a sustainable manner.
Sustainable Nutrition International is currently seeking program funding for its 2014-15 and 2015-16 development programs in Central America. Michael Stayton, former Chief Operating Officer for the World Food Program, and currently Board Chairman of Sustainable Nutrition International, is leading the initiatives for our current program development missions.
