Nutrition & food security

Battle malnutrition and hunger with the help of our food security consultants

Nutrition & food security

Access to nutritious and secure food supplies is a key concern for consumers, governments, and businesses alike. The global population relies on the food and agribusiness industry to provide a reliable supply of food that is both plentiful and nutritious.

However, growing concerns over climate change, population growth, and supply chain shocks are placing increased pressure on all levels of the food supply chain. In 2022, approximately 2.4 billion people did not have consistent access to nutritious, safe, and sufficient food, and previously self-sustaining rural regions are becoming dependent on national and global food markets to survive. In response to these shifting demands, governments and businesses must establish robust food control systems and food management systems that increase food productivity and build resilient food systems.
