Dissatisfaction about the availability of Plumpy'nut keeps brewing under the surface but still not much of it is out in the open.
This from an e-mail by Jeff Johnson at Birdgsong-Peanuts (used with his permission):
. . . Demand for Plumpy Nut is many times what Nutriset and their licensees can supply, yet Nutriset won't expand production. We have asked a number of times and they refuse to grant a license outside of the countries where Plumpy Nut is used. I like using local production but the problem is demand is many times what Nutriset and the local licencees can supply. . . .
What do patents and peanut butter have to do with starving kids?
