The Ministry of Food (Bengali: খাদ্য মন্ত্রণালয়; Khādya mantraṇālaẏa) is the government ministry of Bangladesh responsible for National Food Policy.[1]

History[edit]

The Ministry of Food was originally the Ministry of Food & Civil Supplies in 1971 after the Independence of Bangladesh. It was renamed to Ministry of Food & Relief and then renamed again as the Ministry of Food & Disaster Management. In 2012 the government of Bangladesh reorganized it as the Ministry of Food and another separate ministry was created called the Ministry of Disaster Management.[2]
