RUTF/ RUSF Plant is designed to produce RUTF ( ready-to-use therapeutic food) and RUSF (ready-to-use supplementary food). The demand for the aforementioned food in the global market is on the rise and is expected to grow in the future. The factors behind the higher demand are many, for instance growing cases of malnutrition because of increasing population, increasing concerns from government and NGOs regarding this issue, and increasing disaster and emergency cases worldwide. The RUTF is available in bar, biscuits, drinkable powdered, blends, paste and liquid forms, while RUSF are available in solid/ powder, semi-solid/ paste forms. The RUTF and RUSF are UNICEF approved dietary supplements that are meant for nutritional, therapeutic purposes. These food products are given specially to malnourished children or elderly people who lack nutrition in their diet.

RUTF / RUSF stands for Ready to Use Therapeutic Food and RUSF for Ready to Supplementary Food is a key element approved by UNICEF of community-based treatment of severe acute malnutrition. Ready-to-use Therapeutic Food (RUTF) has revolutionized the treatment of severe malnutrition – providing foods that are safe to use at home and ensure rapid weight gain in severely malnourished children.

RUTF is peanut butter "amplified" – it is loosely defined as a fortified peanut butter paste rich in vitamins and energy. The advantage of RUTF is that it is a ready-to-use paste which does not need to be mixed with water, thereby avoiding the risk of bacterial proliferation in case of accidental contamination.We have already setup RUTF plant to GC Rieber and Nuflower Foods and Nutrition who are official suppliers of RUTF for UNICEF.
