Finance Intern at Africa Improved Foods

Posted By on Thursday, July 26, 2018

Africa Improved Foods (AIF), is a Public-Private Partnership focused on addressing malnutrition through the production of nutritious, high-quality fortified foods. It is a joint venture involving a number of international organizations: DSM – the largest nutrition company in the world; the World Bank (IFC); the UK Govt (CDC) the Dutch Govt (FMO). The Government of Rwanda, and the World Food Programme.

Our products are intended to address malnutrition among vulnerable population segments such as pregnant and breastfeeding mothers, older infants and young children especially in the first 1,000 days of their life. To this end, we have built a world-class food processing plant in Rwanda – to serve the East Africa region – and are now expanding into Ethiopia.

In as much as we are a commercial, for-profit organization, we also strive to have the maximum social, economic and environmental impact possible on the communities in which we operate. In this respect, we have strong working relationships with reputable NGO’s across the EAC Region.

Our model is to source raw materials from local small-holder farmers, employ, develop and to deploy local talent in the creation and growth of our fortified foods business.

Our Mission is to provide African consumers with high-quality fortified complementary foods that are affordable and available.

Our Vision is to be a trusted Africa-based producer of a range of nutritious foods that are proven to improve health.

Africa Improved Foods is looking for self-motivated, qualified individuals with the right attitude and a passion for innovation to join our young and energetic team in the position of Finance Intern.
