I write in response to issue 1/2013 of this magazine, and in my capacity as India Country Head, Sight and Life. India’s battle against malnutrition has been a widely recognized challenge. Achieving food security is a popular way of addressing this challenge. The focus of food security in India has previously been on food availability rather than assuring dietary quality, and with significant government support, India was able to achieve self-sufficiency in this area. However, this led to the problem of a surplus of food grains to the extent that storage became an issue, resulting in the rotting of large quantities of grain.
