INFORMAS in Iran┬áis run by Professor Nasrin Omidvar. Presently, 3 modules have been initiated and are in the planning phase, including: Public Sector (Food EPI), Food Promotion and Food Price. The Iranian team will work under the National Nutrition and Food Technology Research Institute (NNFTRI). Due the institute’s extensive connections with industry, as well as the health sector and Food and Drug Administration of Iran, we hope to be able to collect the necessary data.

According to our plan, data collection, analysis and reporting of these 3 modules will be done by mid-2022. The team has previously worked on food marketing and food environment with a focus on school-age children.
