19 November 2014, Rome--- Governments need to lead the way against hunger and malnutrition, but this effort must be collective and involve parliamentarians, civil society and the private sector. Speaking at a private sector pre-event on the eve of the Second International Conference on Nutrition (ICN2), Graziano da Silva stressed "the common responsibility to ensure food security and adequate nutrition for all." Private sector participation will also be essential in graduallying reducing saturated fats, sugars, salt and trans-fats in food and drinks.
