I would like to thank FAO for having given me the opportunity to share my 30 years of experience in production, research and teaching on the vast, difficult and changing topic of the production and marketing of fruits and vegetables. I would like to especially acknowledge Dr. Danilo J. Mejía, officer of the Agricultural and Food Engineering Technologies Service (AGST, FAO Rome), not only for having proposed the program to be developed but also for his valuable contributions and suggestions that helped to improve and enrich this work. I would also like to thank Mr. Edward Seidler, Senior Officer, Marketing AGSF, who edited the English translation of the publication, originally prepared in Spanish.
