Lucky Iron Fish
The kantrop fish is a symbol of luck in Cambodia. It’s commonly found in the rivers there, so it’s no surprise that it became the symbol of Lucky Iron Fish Enterprises. The company was founded to improve the health and wealth of Cambodian communities by providing a “safe, effective, easy-to-use solution for iron deficiency.” More than 40% of Cambodians suffer from iron deficiency or anemia, but Lucky Iron Fish is working to change that by giving people in developing nations, and around the world, an easy way to add needed iron to their food. A certified B Corp since 2014, the company operates and invests in Cambodia, where Iron-Infused Cooking Fish and packaging are produced from recycled materials in partnership with local social agencies, NGOs, and cooperatives. They also provide free iron fish to families who can’t afford them, and offer nutrition education and support in the villages where they work.
