“Research on Substitute of Raw Material”

The current formulation of RUTF contains peanuts, vitamins and minerals, vegetable oil, and milk powder. The cost of these ingredients is significantly high, which results in a higher cost for the end product. The number of persons requiring treatment exceeds the available funds for this purpose, to a substantial extent. As a result, the need for cost-effective raw material substitutes is significantly high. The use of alternative and cost-effective ingredients in the RUTF and RUSF products can reduce the overall cost of the products.

“Rising Global Emergencies and Disasters are driving the Growth of RUTF & RUSF Market”

With rising number of global emergencies and requirement for rehabilitation of people, the governments, NGOs, and organizations such as UNICEF are focusing on procurement and production of RUTF & RUSF. As a result, global procurement of RUTF & RUSF products is increasing rapidly, in turn driving the market growth to significant extent.

“Increasing Spending on SCR Activities of Big and Mid-size Corporates”

According to UNICEF and WHO, approximately 33 million children, under five years of age, are suffering from moderate acute malnutrition (MAM) and 19 million children, under five years of age, are suffering from severe acute malnutrition (SAM).

This increasing number child is suffering for SAM and MAM is becoming a big concern for everyone. Thus, big corporate companies are coming forward to help and feed these children through CSR activities. These factors are driving the demand for RUTF and RUSF products.

“UNICEF Encouraging Domestic Production of RUTF”

UNICEF is focusing on encouraging local manufacturing of RUTF and RUSF products to support and increase the availability of Ready-to-Use Food (RUF), as more countries adopt Community Management of Acute Malnutrition (CMAM) and scale up the treatment of severe acute malnutrition (SAM), to avoid transportation costs and make RUTF and RUSF procurement and distribution easy in all regions.

“Increasing Consumer/Local Government Shift towards Local Ingredients is Hindering the Market Growth”

Standard RUTF formula by UNICEF contains peanut, milk powder, vegetable oils, and vitamins and minerals as ingredients. Peanut and milk powder are not cost-effective in every region. Cost is a major factor concerning local production of RUTF and RUSF and the import of raw materials is required to formulate these products effectively. Thus, local manufacturers and governments prefer locally available substitutes and are focusing on developing RUTF products using other cost-effective raw materials and substitutes for peanuts and other ingredients, which can affect the growth of international players.
