Public enterprises contribute significantly to food security by investing in agricultural infrastructure, ensuring affordability and accessibility of food, and responding effectively to emergencies that may threaten the availability of food supplies. Their interventions play a vital role in safeguarding the well-being and stability of a nation’s food system. However, evidence shows that due to problems of targeting the poor and due to endemic corruption in public enterprises, adequate amount of food is not reaching the poor. While the public distribution of food through public enterprises has avoided famines, malnutrition persists especially in small remote villages.
