Improving food and nutrition security through better availability,accessibility, and utilization of food and food products is a complex challenge. After all, it involves a sector where key activities (such as the production, distribution and consumption of food and the identification of food markets) are largely in the hands of private enterprises. Involved as consumer, producer or entrepreneur, for the Base of the Pyramid (BoP) population, interventions by the privatesector in the food value chain can increase the income of the actors in the chain, increase the availability of food products, make food products more affordable, or increase the â€“ nutritious â€“ quality of food. Interventions will ultimately contribute to improving the availability of and access to nutritious food and food products.
