The Food Security Initiative – Stellenbosch University

Food for the Next Generation

The Food Security Initiative contributes to the emergence of a resilient, sustainable food system for Southern Africa, by reconceptualising the food security challenge, and creating new models of practice in the food system, through the integration of findings from in depth research on key issues in the food value chain, collaboration across disciplinary boundaries, capacity building and systematic impact assessment. The three key focus areas of the initiative are:

1)      Sustainable production for safe and nutritious food

2)      Utilisation of safe and nutritious food

3)      Post-harvest optimization
