Abstract

This paper proposes the construction of the Minimum Food Security Quota (MFS-Quota) using mathematical economic modeling in real time. The MFS-Quota fixes a certain amount of annual food storage to prepare a country for any natural or social disasters. Any country can construct its own MFS-Quota for “food security policy”. This paper applied the MFS-Quota in the case of Malaysia.
