11-14 Oct 2016 – Course Postharvest Technology

Are you looking for an update on the latest technologies for storage, packaging and handling of fresh horticultural products? Would you like to broaden and deepen your knowledge of the biology of postharvest development, ripening and deterioration? Then this course might be something for you. 35% of all harvested crops is lost during storage and distribution.

The increasing globalisation of both the fresh produce and ornamental sectors necessitates long-term transport and the demand for high quality products stresses the need for innovative and sustainable postharvest technologies. Prevention of postharvest losses therefore is of major importance for global food and nutritional security.
