Food security

In a world faced with a growing population, resource challenges and climate change, food security is essential to us all. According to the FAO (The Food and Agriculture Organization), “food security exists when all people, at all times, have physical, social and economic access to sufficient, safe and nutritious food which meets their dietary needs and food preferences for an active and healthy life.” Consequently, food security includes both safe food and food availability.​
