Main drivers of food security - FEBA's response to the public consultation paper circulated among the Advisory Group for Sustainable Food Systems

This paper summarises the position of FEBA regarding the main drivers of food security, highlighting that, in addition to availability and accessibility, the aspect of affordability should not be forgotten. Especially in the context of food system sustainability, food donation is of special importance since it is not only an environmentally sensitive, business-friendly, and socially responsible alternative but also a relevant driver of food security. Therewith, it is in line with the three pillars of sustainability.

FEBA wrote this position paper in response to a working document issued by the Advisory Group for Sustainable Food Systems of which it is a member.
