For centuries, mankind has worked to balance its population with its ability to keep people fed. Yet, despite best efforts, almost 1 billion people — out of a world population of 7.4 billion — live with hunger today. Within the next 15 years it is thought another billion mouths will need feeding — many in Asia and Africa — in some of the poorest and most food-deprived regions of the world.

The real problem is that we simply do not eat enough of what we make.
