Abstract: The submitted scientific paper deals with agricultural food systems and food security and nutrition in the world and European Union. The objective of this paper is to analyse agricultural food systems and their role at increasing food security and nutrition, food supply chain, food losses and land degradation. Data are gained from authors own research and other data were obtained from FAO and OECD. In 2017, 815 million people have been undernourished in the world. Economic growth alone will be not enough to end hunger and malnutrition. Nutrition has to be set as an explicit objective in coherent and cross-sectoral strategies, policies and programmes. The high level of EU food safety and nutrition can be achieved if cross-cutting policy measures are vital for the future EU food safety and nutrition, international food chain governance should be consistently advanced.

Keywords: agriculture, food security, food system, food supply chain, nutrition
