We want to
Who we are?
Nutrition affects every aspect of human development, beginning in fetal life with brain and other organ formation. It continues after birth, directly influencing immune functions as well as memory, mental processing, and cognitive development. In short, nutrition provides the ingredients for building a healthy start to life and helping individuals realize their full health, learning, and economic potential.
When, we started the journey of Hungry Foal, from a small room of 6ft X 4ft, we could not envision in our most hopeful moments the growth in size and capability that is recorded today. Our strategy focuses on the research, development, and evaluation of improved and new products and tools to ensure that everyone receives all the nutrients needed for healthy growth and development. At Hungry Foal, by manufacturing & selling, nutritional food products, we are making nutrition, tasty, affordable and accessible to all.We are trying to eradicate nutritional deficiencies in all its forms and that too at a large scale in a sustainable & scalable way.
Today, a set of key proven affordable nutritional products exist at Hungry Foal, that if implemented at sufficient scale, could reduce the burden of under nutrition across all age groups. Our products ensure sufficient intakes of key vitamins and minerals such as vitamin A, zinc, iron, calcium, vitamin B Complex, D and folic acid in the diet. Scale-up of our proven nutrition interventions targeted at pregnant & lactating women and children up to 15 years of age will reduce significant nutrition-associated death and disability. This will also close knowledge gaps and disseminate evidence to decision makers so that they invest more and more wisely in nutrition and global policy & advocacy efforts so that the needed resources and participation of all relevant stakeholders can be ensured to respond fully to the scale of undernutrition.
Our recognition as a ‘Start-Up’ by the Department of Industrial Policy and Promotion, Govt. of India & debt funding by State Bank of India (India’s leading bank) under Stand up India Scheme of Govt of India & equity funding by GAIL (India) Ltd., is testament to our commitment towards innovation, sustainability & scalability.
At Hungry Foal, we believe, “Why should nutritional products be limited to the one who can afford it, why can’t it be a reality for the people who need it most, but, can’t afford it ? And, that’s what we are doing at Hungry Foal - Making nutrition tasty, affordable and accessible to all. The day is not far, when in addition to “Education for all”, we’ll have a new slogan, “Nutrition for all”.
“Nutrition is for all, so is Hungry Foal”
