Defining Food Security

If you research the issue in depth, you will find that there are a variety of definitions for the term “food security.”

At DuPont, we believe food security exists when all people at all times have physical, social, and economic access to sufficient and nutritious food that meets their dietary need and food preferences for a healthy and active life.
