Alleviating Post Harvest Losses
Alleviating post-harvest losses is a critical step in ensuring food security and reducing waste. Proper storage and handling techniques help prevent spoilage, contamination and insect infestation, which are major causes of post-harvest losses. Improved transportation and distribution networks also help to reduce losses by ensuring that crops reach their destination in a timely and efficient manner. Additionally, educating farmers on best practices for harvesting, handling, and storing their crops can go a long way in reducing losses and increasing yields. AgroCold Ghana Ltd is helping to change the narrative by addressing post harvest losses to ensure that the worlds food supply is more resilient and sustainable for years to come.
