MANA NUTRITION ADDED AS NEW SELECT EMPLOYEE GROUP
The Department of Banking recently approved MANA Nutrition as MUCU’s newest Select Employee Group. Located in Fitzgerald, Georgia and Charlotte, North Carolina, MANA develops and provides solutions to address severe cases of malnutrition in children. At the MANA village they make MANA (Mother Administered Nutritive Aid), a ready-to-use therapeutic food (RUTF) made of a fortified peanut paste that has been carefully formulated to provide a child’s basic nutritional needs. Roughly three servings of MANA a day for six weeks can save the life of child suffering from severe acute malnutrition (SAM). They are organizationally structured as a non-profit, but run the company according to the same tried and true best-practice business principles that are the hallmark of great companies around the globe. They not only make a special fortified peanut butter, they also seek to spread awareness of SAM and the 20 million children it affects every year.
