FIRST AFRICA-WIDE POSTHARVEST FOOD LOSS REDUCTION CONFERENCE AND EXHIBITION
Nairobi (Kenya), Hybrid Event, 28/03/2017 - 31/03/2017
Nairobi, Kenya - The World Food Preservation Center® LLC in conjunction with its sister University (University of Nairobi) and a consortium of Universities and a Research & Development Institution in Africa are organizing the First Africa-wide Postharvest Loss Reduction Conference and Exhibition.
The Conference theme is ‘Reducing Postharvest Food Losses: Sustainable Solutions for Africa’ and will bring together diverse stakeholders in the food supply chain including farmers, transporters and traders. Other targeted participants include researchers, academics, policy makers, technology developers and entrepreneurs in the public and private sector.
The overall aim of the conference is to provide a platform where technology developers and promoters can interact with potential users, sponsors and policy makers with an ultimate goal of scaling up for wider adoption in an enabling policy environment. Success stories of technologies, practices, strategies and policies that have worked to reduce food losses in the African context will also be showcased.
The Conference organizers would like to extend an invitation to you as a paper presenter, exhibitor, or sponsor. We believe that this Conference can be a seminal event in setting a stage to substantially reduce postharvest food losses and improve the livelihoods of smallholder farmers on the African continent.
Call for abstract submission opens on 1st June 2016. Deadline for abstract submission is 30 November 2016.
