The World Food Preservation Center® LLC in conjunction with its sister University (University of Nairobi) and a consortium of Universities and a Research & Development Institution in Africa organize this congress and exhibition, with the theme “Reducing Postharvest Food Losses: Sustainable Solutions for Africa”.
The congress will be held from March 28 to 31, 2017 at Safari Park Hotel, Nairobi, Kenya. The conference theme “Reducing Postharvest Food Losses: Sustainable Solutions for Africa” will bring together diverse stakeholders in the food supply chain including farmers, transporters and traders. Other targeted participants include researchers, academics, policy makers, technology developers and entrepreneurs in the public and private sector.
The overall aim of the congress is to provide a platform where technology developers and promoters can interact with potential users, sponsors and policy makers with an ultimate goal of scaling up for wider adoption in an enabling policy environment. Success stories of technologies, practices, strategies and policies that have worked to reduce food losses in the African context will also be showcased.
The Congress Organizers would like to extend an invitation to you as a paper presenter, exhibitor, or sponsor. We believe that this Congress can be a seminal event in setting a stage to substantially reduce postharvest food losses and improve the livelihoods of smallholder farmers on the African continent.
