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.

  1. So proud to be a fellow DuPonter today. Thanks for raising levels of awareness so effectively. Praise to the early ‘collaborators’ and first onboarders. Let us know who they are and give recognition. You have been worthy world leaders!

  2. I pointed out that there was a need for this a year ago in International Food Hygiene Magazine. Good to see something happening. Pity we were not informed about it’s launch directly. Our food safety professional readers around the world will be interested.

  3. Thanks Derrick. Hygiene is absolutely an important component to global food security. Take a look at the EIU’s new Food Security Index [ ] , it ranks 105 countries using over 25 different variables. While hygiene is not one of them, you may find the tool interesting. We would love to hear your thoughts on it. Thanks again for your interest!
