Food fairness is a multidimensional concept and covers the material as well as political, social and environmental dimensions of life. Achieving food security is the primary material concern and refers to the ability to access sufficient, safe and nutritious food.
However, a primary focus of public policy in many countries on food security, together with market forces have led to large scale farming, global food chains, and a powerful food industry in the developed countries. It becomes increasingly obvious that the benefits and disadvantages are not equally distributed among all participants in the global food chain. New business models are needed to make the desired transition.
