About FNRI

The Food and Nutrition Research Institute (FNRI), the principal research arm of the government in food and nutrition, is one of the research and development institutes of the Department of Science and Technology (DOST). As such, the Institute pursues the objectives of the National Science and Technology Plan for 2002-2020 (NSTP 2020); the goals stated in the Medium-Term Development Plan (MTDP); and the Philippine Plan of Action for Nutrition (PPAN).

The FNRI began as the Institute of Nutrition (IN) serving as a clearing house of data and information on food and nutrition by virtue of Executive Order No. 94 on July 1, 1947. With the creation of the National Science Development Board in 1958, the Institute was renamed the Food and Nutrition Research Center (FNRC). In 1975, the Center became known as the Food and Nutrition Research Institute by virtue of Presidential Decree (PD) 733.

The FNRI provides technical assistance to the National Nutrition Council who oversees the implementation of the MTPPAN. FNRI was mandated by E.O. 128 (Jan. 1987) and 352 (Jan. 1996) to provide the benchmarks by which to gauge the country's progress towards achieving the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), which include among others, the eradication of hunger and the reduction of child mortality. The target is to halve, between 1990 and 2015, the proportion of people who suffer from hunger, as indicated from the prevalence of underweight-for-age 0-5 year old children, and the proportion of the population below the minimum level of dietary energy consumption.

The Institute continues to provide relevant technologies and scientific information on food and nutrition. Some of its major accomplishments include the development and commercialization of nutritional food products; conduct of periodic nationwide nutrition surveys; development of analytical food quality and safety assurance system; strategies and programs to address the malnutrition problem and tools, guidelines and standards to serve the needs of nutrition and nutrition-related workers. All these technologies are transferred to health and nutrition program implementors as well as the households and communities with the end view of improving the quality of life of Filipinos.

For the past sixty years and holding true to its mandates, the FNRI undertook food and nutrition research and development programs and has proven its excellence along this line, particularly in nutritional assessment and monitoring. S&T technology transfer and utilization programs complemented the R&D in providing various F&N stakeholders with research data, information and services to enhance service delivery to their various clientele.
