Postharvest Network and the F&BKP

The Postharvest Network is contributing to the knowledge agenda of the F&BKP on the theme Food Wastage. Research on certain topics is being explored and joint events are organized with a focus on reducing food wastage and improving supply chains.

About Postharvest Network

The Postharvest Network links businesses, co-operations and governments to Dutch expertise, knowledge and products as to minimize food losses in the postharvest supply chain. In some chains, around 50% of the harvest is lost before the product even reaches the consumer. Enterprises, knowledge institutes and NGOs of Dutch origin are working in food supply chains all over the world. With global experience, the network knows how to implement proven solutions to reduce food losses and improve supply chains.
