Reverend Thomas Streit, C.S.C. began researching the effectiveness of double-fortified salt in the early 2000's. After a successful trial in Miton, a Haitian commune, production of BSD+ was started in 2006 at the Ministry of Health facility in Port au Prince. A second facility with expanded capabilities and capacities was commissioned in 2014.
Bon Sel Dayiti is the only food-grade, iodized, and fortified salt produced in Haiti. Established as a project of the University of Notre Dame Haiti Program, our primary goal is to eliminate lymphatic filariasis (LF) by 2020 and aid in reducing iodine deficiency disorders (IDD).
