South Africa has enough food for its people. Our country generally shows a healthy exportable surplus in its production of basic foodstuffs. In cases where drought or other factors have caused a shortfall in supply, we have always been able to import sufficient food timeously. We have never featured on the UN Food and Agriculture Organisation's (FAO's) Global Information and Early Warning System as a country in, or even approaching, a food crisis. Food production in South Africa is also diversified, ensuring the availability of a wide range of foodstuffs.
