Nutrition and Food Information Sharing-Network (NAFIS)

The NAFIS (Nutrition and Food Information Sharing-Network) program, initiated by College of Applied Food and Dairy Technology (CAFODAT) and Community Innovation Organization (CIO), serves as a dynamic platform for individuals passionate about engaging in comprehensive discussions pertaining to food, nutrition and health-related matters in Nepal. NAFIS is a collaborative initiative aimed at fostering interdisciplinary dialogue, knowledge exchange, and innovation in the realms of food nutrition and health sectors. 

We have effectively hosted five seminars, each featuring a panel of nine distinguished speakers, in the presence of a robust gathering exceeding 250 active participants vested in the domains of food nutrition and health sectors. The attendee demographic encompassed a heterogeneous array of individuals, including scholars, researchers, policymakers, professors, development professionals, community mobilizers, students and entrepreneurs.
