Post Harvest Technology Innovations - Part 1 (MD006)


This is the Part-1 of a 2 part interactive session on Post-harvest technology innovations in food chains

Creating value out of food losses is one of the critical themes around food sustainability and Mr. Shubham Chandra is an innovative entrepreneur and investor in post-harvest technology interventions.

In this session Shuhbham will take you through:
1) The context of food losses along the entire food value chain in both established and emerging markets
2) The different technology innovations applicable for different products operating in varied
environments and markets
3) The process of testing the technological effectiveness of a post-harvest technology
4) Approach to testing the business effectiveness of post-harvest technology intervention

For any specific questions related to this Seminar do reach out to us on the discussion forum.
