Role of government in food supply


, : Role of government in food supply. Nutrition and Health 3(4): 247-254

Food is a primary necessity of life and worldwide governments have a substantial influence on the foods offered for human consumption. Principal movement is concerned with supply of foods through assistance to farmers in general aiming to maintain a fair standard of return for those involved in agriculture. Further involvement relates to quality of foods (microbiological safety) and with consumer protection against unfair trading practice. Government economic policies influence demand for foods whilst educational strategies can stimulate particular food choices. Present nutritional ideas recommend changes to diet as part of programmes designated to reduce incidence of conditions such as coronary heart disease. It is a government responsibility to provide clear information on foods and nutrition. Rational government involvement can lead to better nutrition for the population whilst stimulating an efficient agricultural industry.

The latter valve morphology is associated with colony...
