More than 800 million people are suffering from hunger on our planet. This hunger includes chronic food deprivation and malnutrition in the form of nutrient and micronutrient deficiencies as well as shortfalls in vitamins and essential metals. The majority of these people live in low- and middle-income countries and mostly in rural areas. They largely depend on agriculture and livestock.
This study provides quantitative evidence for the potential impact dairying can have in eradicating hunger (SDG 2) and showing the role dairy products play in providing balanced, healthy and safe nutrition.
