The Congress whose theme is Reducing Food Losses and Waste: Sustainable Solutions for Africawill discuss and showcase actionable strategies for reducing food loss in Africa.The Congress will draw attendance from over 300 researchers, academics, farmers, development agencies, civil society and policy makers. The speakers will present and discuss latest topics with the overall objective of identifying effective interventions to reduce FLW on the continent.

To make the Congress interesting, we have divided the discussions into the following sub-themes:

  • Postharvest food and loss waste evaluation/ assessment.
  • Postharvest handling and technologies for perishable commodities (including fruits, vegetables, roots & tubers, edible fungi, milk, fish, meat, cooked food).
  • Postharvest handling and technologies for non-perishable commodities (including grains, processed foods)
  • Capacity building including Postharvest training, education, extension/outreach programs
  • Gender, Policy and Governance issues affecting postharvest management

This four day long Congress is an excellent opportunity to meet with your peers from all over the world, share ideas and create an opportunity for networking, collaboration, sharing of technical information and the building of trust relationship in Africa.
