The report noted that about 500 million smallholder farmers grow 70% of the world's food. However, most of them go hungry. The farmers do not get a fair price for their produce even when the commodity prices are high.

I would be interested in your insite on this. I am NOT expressing any opinion, just putting out a article from "Food Technology Process & Production" this is a Food Trade publication.
