The World Food Programme (WFP) distributes approximately 125,000 metric tons per year of processed complementary foods in maternal and child health and school feeding programmes and for use in refugee and emergency projects. In formulating the foods, WFP seeks the highest nutritional quality for the best cost. Safety is never compromised. The cost of WFP foods is about US$360 per metric ton. The United States Agency for International Development provides half of WFP's demand, and the local manufacturers provide the rest. WFP has had a very successful experience in working with the private sector.
