Harvest Plus international based in Washington D.C Arinze told health commissioner, Inyang Asibong Thursday, will partner the state’s health ministry to hold the 2016 annual nutrition food fair in Calabar.

Describing his visit as a bid to seek partnership for the hosting of the event, Arinze said that, “harvest plus international has decided to hold the 2016 annual nutrition food fair in Calabar. We are using film, music and comedy to pass our message on bio-fortified foods.

“We will partner with the ministry of agriculture and the creative industry for the hosting”.

The event which he disclosed is scheduled for November 1 – 4, 2016, according to him will see the likes of Aki (Chinedu Ikedieze), Pawpaw (Osita Iheme) amongst other guest artists grace the event with foodstuff such as banana, plantain and maize fortified with zinc set to be showcased.

Asibong who lauded the organization for its initiative, describing it as apt, noted that, “We have been charged by the governor to go beyond our offices to sort for partners to drive our programs.

“I must sincerely laud your organization’s decision for choosing Calabar for this year hosting, the importance of nutrition cannot be over emphasized, we are glad you have come” she said.
