The Nutrition Research Information Network (NUTRINET) is composed of 17 member-institutions whose libraries and information centers have linked up to form a specialized information system in food and nutrition. 

As part of Department of Science and Technology-Food and Nutrition Research Institute's (DOST-FNRI) celebration of 2016 National Science and Technology Week (NSTW) on July 25-29, 2016, NUTRINET celebrated its 29th Anniversary on July 27, 2016 dubbed as NUTRINET Day. During the NUTRINET Day, 11 NUTRINET Technical Committee (TecCom) members participated in the DOST-FNRI's Facilities Tour.

They also availed of the Institute's nutrition counselling service. The highlight of the NUTRINET Day was the luncheon celebration of the Network's 29th Anniversary. It was attended by present and former TecCom members and the librarian of an adopt-alibrary beneficiary state university, Cavite State University (CvSU) in Naic. Also in attendance were Dr. Mario V. Capanzana, NUTRINET Governing Board Chair and Director of DOSTFNRI, and Dr. Ferdinand B. Oamar, Deputy Director of DOST-FNRI. In his inspirational message, Dr. Capanzana said that "It is with great pride that I congratulate the NUTRINET for reaching 29 years of fruitful existence despite its being a “zero” fund organization. NUTRINET has grown stronger through the years because of the dedication and commitment of its member-institutions. You have given your continued support and in your small and innovative ways, have thought and worked out projects for the Network." He concluded his message by challenging the TecCom members to come-up with ICT-based innovations and applications for NUTRINET and its service delivery.
