Event Description

Managing the crop supply chain for increased food security
Stark contrasts exist in how we manage the food we have available. While in developing and transition countries food losses mainly happen post-harvest, in the urban and wealthier communities good food is wasted in retail stages of the supply chain and by consumers. Strategies to minimize food losses and waste along the chain can contribute to food security and sustainable food production.

Course objectives
Upon completion of the course you will:

  • understand the link between primary production, post-harvest management, the supply chain and food security;
  • be familiar with alternative uses of food waste;
  • have insight into the public and private responsibilities in the supply chain for post-harvest handling and food waste management;
  • be able to design solutions for minimising the amount of ‘missing food’, from smallholders to multinational retailers.
