As a part of our commitment to food and nutrition security, DuPont commissioned the Economist Intelligence Unit to develop a comprehensive measurement tool that addresses the need for specific metrics to illustrate what food security looks like at the local level – country by country and globally.
Since its launch in 2012, the Global Food Security Index has been updated annually, allowing for year-over-year comparisons. Our hope is that the comprehensive and unique information available in this tool will help inform decision making that leads to sustainable solutions.

DuPont Turkey recently hosted a Sustainable Agriculture and Food Summit in Instanbul. This meeting corresponded with the launch of the 2014 Global Food Security Index.
The Index is the first to examine food security comprehensively across the three internationally established dimensions – affordability, availability, and quality and safety. Moreover, the study looks beyond hunger to the underlying factors affecting food insecurity.
