Investments in commodities have increased continuously in the recent years, but the positive impact expected on hunger and malnutrition is not there yet. Despite the fact that food production has never been higher, 30 to 40% of the world production is lost today, due to a lack of infrastructure. Some blame speculation, others the unwillingness of the states.  Many actors are also pointing out the disproportion between financial transactions and the financing of concrete activities.
