What is Food Sovereignty?

Food Sovereignty is the RIGHT of peoples, communities, and countries to define

their own agricultural, labour, fishing, food and land policies which are
ecologically, socially, economically and culturally appropriate to their unique
circumstances. It includes the true right to food and to produce food, which
means that all people have the right to safe, nutritious and culturally
appropriate food and to food-producing resources and the ability to sustain
themselves and their societies.
