The Food Sustainability Index (FSI) developed by the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) with the Barilla Center for Food and Nutrition (BCFN) is a quantitative and qualitative tool designed to provide a detailed assessment of a nation's food sustainability. The second edition of the FSI was published 12 January 2018.
The study ranks 34 countries, representing 85% of global GDP and approximately two thirds of the global population, which are analyzed according to 35 main indicators and 50 sub-indicators; all this organized around three pillars: nutritional challenges, agriculture and food loss and waste (News Item Barilla Center for Food & Nutrition Foundation, 12 January 2018).
