Lost harvest and wasted food
Globally, 30-40% of the food produced is lost and never consumed. In this course, we examine ways to minimise post-harvest losses, reduce food waste and explore alternatives. This will ultimately contribute to food security.
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.
Course date: 23 September – 04 October 2019
Fellowship deadline: 19 March 2019
Deadline other funding: 12 August 2019
For this course fellowships are available.
