Lema do Dia Mundial da Alimentação exalta importância das cooperativas agrícolas na luta contra fome
Cartaz do Dia Mundial da Alimentação, com tema para este ano " Cooperativas Agrícolas Chave para alimentar o mundo."

The United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) celebrates, on Tuesday (16) the World Food Day, whose theme this year Agricultural Cooperatives key to feeding the world.

The theme was chosen to highlight the role of cooperatives in food security and the fight against hunger.

Director-General of FAO, José Graziano da Silva, alert to the dangers that result from the lack of investment in agriculture of countries over the past 30 years. After the food crisis of 2007/08, many countries renewed their commitments to eradicate world hunger and improve the quality of life of populations. But in many cases, concrete policy measures, programs and financial aid have not passed the verbal commitments.

Every day, small producers around the world continue to face constraints that prevent them from enjoying the benefits of their work and to contribute to food security, not only of themselves but of all through markets, says Graziano.

For him, the cooperatives are a solution to the difficulties of small farmers as strong producer organizations can reduce costs through group purchasing, and obtain better selling prices in the markets.
