Graziano da Silva meets Unilever CEO

FAO Director General José Graziano da Silva and Unilever Chief Executive Officer Paul Polman discussed the importance of supporting smallholder famers at a meeting at FAO headquarters today.

“This meeting was an opportunity to discuss global issues that we need to solve, food security being obviously very high in the agenda,” the Unilever chief said. “The fact that almost a billion people go to bed hungry every day is unacceptable. This makes FAO a strategic partner for the private sector.”
