  • Abstract:

Food insecurity, poverty, hunger and
malnutrition are age-long problems that
endure till date and may continue for some
time to come unabated until man is able to
dominate his environment. The global
population of about 6 billion people today
have 15% more food available per capita
than when the global population was 3
billion about four decades ago. Yet more
than 820 million people are chronically
undernourished because they lack access to
sufficient food. As at 2010, about 900
million people are still suffering from
hunger (Fans & Brzeska, 2010).
