INTRODUCTION Foods are very prone to loss and waste. Such loss and waste does not only lead to reduced farmers' incomes and increase consumers' expenses but also present many negative economic and environmental challenges. While the number of food insecure population remains unacceptably high, massive quantities of food are lost due to spoilage and infestations before they can be consumed. Reducing food losses and waste is a proven way of ensuring food security. This training course is designed to shed light on causes of postharvest losses and strategies that can reduce such losses.
DURATION 5 Days
COURSE OBJECTIVES By the end of the course, participants will be able to: Understand the concepts of food losses and control.
