Agricultural Trade and Food Security

By Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations

Nutrition Reference Publication

Electronic reproduction.

Excerpt: Trade contributes to food security in a number of ways: it augments domestic supplies to meet consumption needs; it reduces supply variability, though not necessarily price instability; it fosters economic growth; it makes efficient use of world resources; and it permits global production to take place in those regions most suited to it. Trade is of continuing importance for both developed and developing countries.
