Food Security is one of the world’s most pressing basic needs today. Ironically, although the world technically produces enough food to feed its vast population, an estimated one billion people go hungry every day.
Factors like food wastage due to inadequate, outdated storage and transportation infrastructure, volatility in commodity and food prices due to imbalances in demand and supply, contribute towards food insecurity.
We believe the challenge of food security can be addressed by promoting partnerships between public and private sector undertakings, encouraging infrastructure investment, enabling free markets and supporting farmer communities in an inclusive manner.
JICS Logistic LTD. is proud to leverage its role in Indian agribusiness to help tackle this complex challenge. With a business model comprising the entire food value chain – from agricultural post production to consumption – we’re pioneering innovative strategies to improve farmer realizations and maximize food supply in partnership with local farmer communities.
Here’s how JICS Logistic LTD.’s actions at the ground level are contributing to food security
- We’re improving the supply chain infrastructure to reduce post-harvest losses and wastage as a crucial step towards food security
- We’re making post-harvest markets more efficient to ensure that people have access to the food they need, at prices they can afford
- We’re facilitating reliable markets to sell crops and realize better prices as incentives for farmers to continue production year-on-year
- We’re facilitating farmers’ access to finance because the world’s food supply depends on their efforts
