The issue of food security has been critical in many parts of the world. In many countries people are facing food crisis and its bad impact falls on their economy. Ensuring the food security has become a global challenge with many dimensions.

The World Food Summit of 1996 defined food security as existing “When all people at all times have access to sufficient, safe, nutritious food to maintain a healthy and active life”.

The ultimate objective of food security should be to ensure that all people at all times have both physical and economic access to food they need. Food Security has three basic aims: ensuring production of adequate food supplies, maximizing stability in the flow of supplies, and ensuring access to available supplies on the part of those who need them.
