The DSIP is a joint project of NFRDI and BFAR.  This initiative aims to support salt industry stakeholders by providing research-based interventions for production, postharvest, and policy matters.

The NFRDI conducts comprehensive industry profiling, assesses the quality of locally produced salt, and develops traditional salt production techniques.

The R&D efforts focus on advancing technology, ensuring product safety and compliance with standards, providing practical policy guidance, and fostering innovation from production to marketing, to revitalize the salt industry.
