Food, a given for many, continues to be scarce for some around the world. According to Our World in Data, around 821 million people globally are undernourished and about 1.9 billion people are suffering moderate to severe food insecurity. The agriculture industry currently employs about 26% of the world population according to the World Bank and is responsible for sustaining the food supply of 7.5 billion people. This is expected to be increasingly challenging with the global population increasing to 9.7 billion by 2050 based on United Nations (UN) projections.
