The importance of food security can be broken down into four main components. First, the availability of food in sufficient quantities needs to be supplied through either domestic production or imports. Second, there needs to be adequate access to a nutritious diet and food for all individuals. Third, there needs to be appropriate utilization of food through a proper diet, clean water, sanitation, and healthcare for individuals. Lastly, there must be stability in access to food, where individuals are not threatened to scarcity or supply difficulties at any time.
