It is estimated that 800 million people predominantly living in developing worlds are food insecure. There are millions of people who hover near starvation even though there are a lot in the world. There has been a decline of food availability per capita in the Sub-Saharan Africa by approximately 3% (FAO in 2002). This is possibly as a result of the recent interlinked food, fuel and financial crises. According to report by FAO in 2009, world population is growing at a rate of 1.4% per year, which means that by 2050 there will be 9.1 billion people in the world. This translates into greatly increased requirements for animal protein for human consumption.
