Today, I’m adding the 10 best countries to live for food security according to The Global Food Security Index 2013 publishes by The Economist Intelligent Unit (E.I.U), which is the Economist’s research arm. It should be noted that DuPont, a world leader in market driven innovation and science, sponsored the index.
The Global Food Security Index 2013 measures the state of food security around the world. The index lists some 107 countries and gave them an overall score out of 100. To tabulate this score, countries were weighted based on three key indicators: affordability, availability and quality and safety. According to this research, the ten best countries from the Global Food Security Index are:
- 1) United States – Score: 86.8
- 2) Norway – Score: 86.5
- 3) France – Score: 83.7
- 4) Austria – Score: 83.4
- 5) Switzerland – Score: 83.2
- 5) Netherlands – Score: 83.2
- 7) Belgium – Score: 82.4
- 8) Canada – Score: 82.1
- 9) New Zealand – Score: 82.0
- 10) Denmark – Score: 81.8
The index found that developing countries made the largest food security gains and in developed countries falling incomes impacted food security. However, overall food security changed very little from the first report in 2012.
Food security is something that impacts everyone around the world and has been a growing concern for years. This list helps highlight were countries fall on the scale and serves to illustrate areas in need of improvement. It also spotlights the global nature of this issue.
