Map: Count of Food Vehicles with Standards

Chart ID: 355

Description

The interactive map displays countries that have legal documentation to either standardize (“voluntary fortification”) or mandate (“mandatory fortification”) food fortification, or countries that have written standards for the nutrients added in fortification (“fortification standards”). The color of each country indicates the number of food vehicles for which some form of legal documentation exists, also detailed in the table below the map. Country classifications for income status and region are from the World Bank.
