Description

Food security is a problem throughout the world. Food security has been a major concern in India. According to UN-India, there are nearly 195 million undernourished people in India, which is a quarter of the world’s hunger burden. India ranks 74 out of 113 major countries in terms of food security index. Though the available nutritional standard is 100% of the requirement, India lags far behind in terms of quality protein intake at 20% which needs to be tackled by making available protein-rich food products such as eggs, meat, fish, chicken, etc. at affordable prices. However, food problem is more widespread in countries with weak states and institutions; where citizens have little opportunity to exercise influence over their own lives.
