The purpose of this manual is to inform NGOs, international agencies and government authorities how Small Scale Fortification (SSF) can be established and used to combat micronutrient deficiencies in less developed countries. The manual outlines circumstances for considering SSF, appropriate methods, evaluation, and strategy to scale-up practice to a district or national level.

Most of the examples and practices described in this manual come from maize milling in Africa, where small scale milling is very common. Recommendations may also be applicable in other situations, such as rice milling and wheat milling of atta in India.
