Food security is the situation related to the supply and access to food. Food security is defined by Anderson in 1990 as access by all individuals at all times to enough food for an active healthy life. According to World Food Summit food security exists when all individuals, at all times, have physical and economic access to sufficient, safe, nutritious food to meet their dietary needs and food preferences for an active life. Food security is a serious issue in South Africa and in many other developing parts of world. Food security technologies are use of advance techniques for the production of adequate food, to satisfy the demand from the increasing population. The food security technologies include nanotechnology, genetic engineering, agricultural technology, chemical technologies, irrigation techniques and others.
