Pakistan is one of the largest food producing countries in the world yet we have severe challenges around availability of even staple food items , accessibility & necessary quantity of food for all and above than all quality food produce and its by-products. Nutritional aspects, utilisation behaviours and sustainable provision of adequate food for all are also un addressed yet. More than 64% population lives in rural areas of Pakistan and around 90% of them are directly engaged with agriculture sector, 43% work in agricultural fields as informal labourer to make their livings. Agriculture, livestock and fisheries are largely known as food assurance sectors in every country and so as in Pakistan however these sectors are highly un-regulated and under-developed due to lack of research and poor extension services for farmers, livestock entrepreneurs and fisherfolks.
