Our commitment: Improve food availability and dietary diversity among the farmers who supply us
Tackling nutrition insecurity in our farming communities
Our analysis shows that as many as 70% of farming families in some countries can be short of food for up to three months. Our Rural Development Framework (RDF) baselines found many have diets that lack diversity and are especially poor in protein and nutrient-dense foods such as vegetables, dairy and fruit. By addressing these challenges, we can help farmers and their families live healthy lives and achieve their potential.
Progress against our objectives
By 2018: Improve food availability and dietary diversity in five priority sourcing locations based upon the results of the Rural Development Framework (RDF) baselines.
Pilot schemes are under way in three countries to prove methodologies.
