Founder and CEO, Edesia Nutrition

Navyn Salem is the founder/CEO of Edesia, a non-profit, social enterprise working to end malnutrition through the production of fortified, ready-to-use foods like Plumpy’Nut for UNICEF, World Food Programme and USAID. Since 2009, Edesia has reached 16 million children in 60 countries from Afghanistan to Somalia to Guatemala and beyond.
