What is Food Sovereignty?

Food sovereignty is the right of peoples, communities, and nations to define their own policies on agriculture, labour, food, and land, appropriate to its unique environmental, social, economic and cultural circumstances. This includes the right to food and food production, which means the right of every person to have access to reliable, healthy, nutritious, and convenient food and sources of food production, and the ability to sustain themselves and their families. Food Sovereignty puts the aspirations and needs of those who produce, distribute and consume food at the heart of food systems and policies rather than the demands of markets and corporations. 

Food sovereignty requires:

  1. Placing priority on food production for domestic and local markets.
  2. Ensuring fair prices for farmers which mean the power to protect internal markets from low-priced, "dumped" imports.
  3. Recognizing and promoting women’s role in food production, equitable access and control over production resources.
  4. Community control over production resources.
  5. Protecting seeds, the basis of food and life itself, for the free exchange and use of farmers.
