Food Connection Challenge

Innovative ideas for reducing post-harvest losses

The Food Connection Challenge creates an opportunity for African agribusinesses and Dutch products and service providers to find joint solutions to address food losses in the agrifood value chain.

Post-harvest losses constitute a major hindrance for businesses in the agri-food value chain worldwide to achieve maximized results. It has been assessed that up to 40% of the food produced is wasted due to inappropriate post-harvest practices, poor storage facilities or weak transportation system. Apart from being an obstacle to the scaling of local businesses, food losses restrain the efficiency of agri-food value chains which therefore achieve suboptimal results.
