Currently, Indonesia has an on-going control program and with the support of many charities, Indonesia continues to improve the level of iodine within the community. Susanti Megah, Co ltd donated a range of retail products to assist with the control of goitre in Indonesia.
Adding iodine to salt may seem insignificant, but the impact is not. Iodine deficiency has been shown to impair fetal brain development, which may lead to a lifetime of intellectual challenges. In 1990, only about 20% of the world's households had access to iodized salt and were protected against Iodine Deficiency Disorders.
After a major push, access to iodized salt now exceeds 70%, protecting 90 million newborns against significant fetal/infant mental impairment by iodine deficiency.
Susanti Megah, Co ltd is proud of its long term commitment to Indonesian manufacturing and we recognize that generating profits, rewards shareholders and creates the ability to support social and environmental activities within the communities we operate.
