The Food Security Standard – Ensuring social sustainability in agricultural production

The Food Security Standard aims to support the private sector's effort to end hunger and to improve social sustainability. It seeks to realize the right to adequate food through the responsible production and global trade of agricultural commodities.


The FSS complements existing sustainability standards by providing an holistic approach on the human right to food. The FSS offers a set of practicable and measurable criteria and audit tools designed to be applicable to all agricultural products, farm sizes and business forms.

The Food Security Standard (FSS) takes into account the Right to adequate Food in agricultural production. Applying the FSS in sustainability certification systems ensures that farmers, workers, and neighbouring communities are food secure.

Welthungerhilfe is one of the largest private aid organisations in Germany, independent of politics and religion. It was established in 1962, as the German section of the “Freedom from Hunger Campaign”.
