However, millions of people, typically in poorer developing countries rely upon staple foods to fill their stomach. These foods do not provide them required micronutrients. Micronutrient malnutrition, also known as “hidden hunger” is one of the major alarming problems in the developing world, affecting an estimated three billion people (Bouis, et al. 2011). Nutritious food is too expensive and/or sometimes unavailable.
These changes would be expensive and long running so companies would find them overvalued and not profitable. We rated this 3 because Kraft has reduced the waste in 6 out 9 of their major manufacturing plants in the U.S. by 80% with plans to reduce waste disposal to zero by 2015. Our final key external factor under opportunities was the increased demand for packaged and processed foods around the world as a result of a change in lifestyles. These days it is more common to have double income families who are bound to have less time to cook and having extra cash for quicker meals. We felt that this was a fairly important success factor for the food processing industry because of the high demand for convenience food.
Can poverty be eradicated? Poverty is lack of money to the point that the individual cannot afford their basic needs. There are two types of poverty, which are absolute and relative. Absolute poverty is lack of basic needs for a long period of time that puts your life in danger, which opposes with relative poverty, which covers the vital and biological needs like food, clean water, and basic housing. (poverties.org, 2011) In my opinion, I think poverty can not be eradicated because there are forty percent of people who are at poverty level, which means 2.8 billion people.
Imagine not being able to provide food for your children! 16,000,000 children struggle with hunger (http://mashable.com/2016/07/14/child-hunger-united-states/#BCHw.No5Waqm), and 60% of the world’s hungry are women(http://www.thp.org/knowledge-center/know-your-world-facts-about-hunger-poverty/). More than 95% of people participate in donating to charity, and in the past twenty years poverty has been cut in half. This is good news, however there are still millions of people in poverty and world hunger. But hunger is only one thing humans living in poverty have to deal with.
The fast food industry has one of the highest turnover rates of any industry. Employees are often temporary or seasonal workers, frequently students working summer or part-time jobs (Van Thompson, 2017). Fast food is often a last resort for many workers and many will not stay and make a career with the company. A third weakness is the unhealthy nature of many of the products. According to the Food Institute’s analysis of data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, “millennials alone spend 44 percent of their budget’s food dollars on eating out” (Carey, Holland, & Pietrangelo, 2017, p.4).
IV. Causes of Poverty and Scarcity of Food The world produces enough to feed the entire global population of 7 billion people however hunger still persists that one out of eight people on the planet does not have three meals a day and goes to bed hungry at night. In some countries, one out of three children are underweight. There are many reasons for the presence of hunger in the world. The World Food Programme highlighted six main reasons that cause the scarcity of food and poverty.
Proper nutrition is important for growing children for a healthy mental, social, and physical life; however, some children do not have access to a proper nutrition. Food Insecurity The definition of food insecurity is that food is not readily available, and an individual doesn’t have regular access to food. According to a survey from nine states and the District of Columbia by the Community Childhood Hunger Identification Project (CCHIP), “An estimate that 4 million American children experience prolonged periodic food insufficiency and hunger each year, 8% of the children under the age of 12 in this country” (Alaimo, Olson, Frongillo and Briefel, 2001, May). But truth be told, the prevalence of food insecurity varies considerably from state to state. Since only 9 states, with the addition of Washington D.C., participated in the study, the information may or may not be as widespread across the country.
healthy food. It is generally more stressful being in the working class as they have less income and so, they worry more about getting food on the table and providing for their families. Those in the working class is also more likely to work manual jobs which are usually more stressful as it requires more repetitive, unsatisfactory work., making them more stressed.

Nations like Malawi and Guinea has individuals with no cash to purchase a proper meal for their family. The majority of them are unskilled because of lack of education is given by the government.

Moreover, due to lack of proper health facilities the ageing population is less in the developing nations. Due to these reasons the developing nations face more problems of food shortage problems compared to developed nations. Over population is one of the major reason of food shortage problem of our nation.
