Food Security

Although more food is being produced today than ever before and, in theory, enough food is available to feed everyone, the number of starving people is on the rise: almost a billion people are without sufficient food. Above all, the rural poor in developing and threshold countries are undernourished because monocultures, debt and land grabbing are rife. Food security does not arise through agricultural and food imports as the food industry, among others, maintains. Instead, it is crucial for a country or region to be able to cover its food needs through its own resources. Achieving this requires protecting and promoting local small-scale farming as this is the basis for gaining access to food and also for its quality. For this reason, every country must be entitled to protect its farm and food producers. This is also true of regulations governing the export of fodder, palm oil, cotton and other products to the EU, the cultivation of which requires valuable farmland in developing and threshold countries, which consequently is not available to produce staple foods. Feeding the local population has priority over exports.
