Increasing economic viability of the Vietnamese fresh fruit industry by reducing postharvest losses


Food security is a global issue illustrated by the attention from the FAO and the WHO. The problem is even more severe in the South where the needs from a growing population create an increasing pressure on their natural resources. This project aims to build local capacities to reduce postharvest losses in the Vietnamese fruit indus-try, improving their efficiency and thus improving food supply without posing additional claims on the already limited natural resources.
