The growing concern over the use of natural resources and the environmental consequences of agricultural practices, requires the increased production is coupled to a sustainable development policy. The food and nutrition security is the realization of everyone's right to regular and permanent access to quality food in sufficient quantity without compromising access to other essential needs, based on best practice health promoting food that respect cultural diversity and that are environmentally, economically and socially sustainable cultural. We define sustainable development as a participatory political process that integrates sustainabilities economic, environmental and sociocultural collective and individual, with a view achieving and maintaining quality of life. Currently we highlight several contributions of technological innovations in agro-industrial production.
