Food Security Campaign

One billion people are hungry and another 1 billion people are obese or suffering from life threatening disease related to under nutrition.

IFOAM’s Food Security campaign challenges policies that have led to this crisis by favoring industrial food and agriculture systems.

Organic Agriculture, by requiring few, low-cost inputs and preserving local biodiversity, is a viable system that empowers farmers to restore and uphold food security.
