Why do we need to act immediately with food security?
Build Startup Based on Food Security Within 54 Hours Through This Program. According to the Food Safety and Quality Division, Ministry of Health Malaysia, food security is a situation where everyone at all times has the physical, social and economic capacity to access ENOUGH, SAFE and NUTRITIOUS food, which can meet the nutritional needs and food choices for an active and healthy life.
However, as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, the food security crisis has intensified as countries around the world impose various restrictions. This has affected food chains around the world, leaving millions of the world's population having difficulty getting enough food, let alone safe and nutritious.
This crisis is a global crisis, which has also affected the community in Sarawak and Malaysia, in general.

of Sarawak As such, Startup Weekend Bintulu organised an initiative to build a strong food security ecosystem in Sarawak. The move will begin by calling on innovators, designers and startup talents across Sarawak to come forward and contribute their ideas.
