VitaGoat: Enterprise Based Model to Address Malnutrition

Commitment by

Yes Bank Limited

In 2007, the YES BANK committed to address malnutrition among women and children by bringing 'VitaGoat,' a sustainable micro-enterprise developed by Malnutrition Matters (MM) for the communities living in the areas of lowest nutrition status in India. VitaGoat employs a bicycle-powered grinder and a wide variety of locally available fuels to prepare protein-rich soy based products like soy-yogurt, tofu, and soymilk as a lower cost, nutritious alternative to milk (which is often more expensive or unavailable).
