How can we improve food and nutrition security, enhance livelihoods along the agricultural value chain, and reduce negative environmental impacts by eliminating the loss of food between field and market?
PYXERA Global is proud to Celebrating the Grim Future of Post-Harvest Loss, a jointly authored publication by Savannah College of Art and Design, reporting outcomes of the post-harvest loss track of The Global Engagement Forum Live.
Post-Harvest Loss is an entirely solvable problem that we can eliminate in our lifetime. At its heart, our approach focuses on the value chain—from the field to the market. It starts with how and when farmers in the regions experiencing the greatest loss—especially small-holder farmers—plant, harvest, and store their crops, and continues along the chain to consider the transportation, handling, processing, packaging, and marketing which is required to improve the amount of food that reaches consumers. An efficient, productive food system with minimized loss is our goal—and one that is well within reach.
