1st All Africa Postharvest Congress & Exhibition
Kenya

 

We have received overwhelming requests and support from experts and practitioners who would like to speak and exhibit at the congress. We therefore look forward to an interesting convening that will adequately tackle the congress theme ‘Reducing Food Losses and Waste: Sustainable Solutions for Africa’ under the various subthemes outlined in the congress poster. A great diversity of delegates have already registered for the congress including researchers, academics, entrepreneurs, farmers, farmer organization leaders, innovators, development agencies, civil society and policy makers from all over the world.  In this regard we should look forward to exciting and interactive sessions during the congress.

An interesting new feature of the congress is the Postharvest Technologies Challenge (PTC) which seeks to attract innovators from all over Africa to share new technologies and innovative ideas to address food loss and waste in the African context. In this regard, there is a call for entries from innovators in the postharvest arena from across Africa. The entries will be screened by experts through a process which will identify the top 10 innovations. The finalists will pitch for their innovations to investors, donors and other relevant stakeholders during a special sessions of the congress.

We are pleased to have the Rockefeller Foundation as the strategic partner for the congress. We are also very grateful to other organizations that committed their resources to support this great initiative. These include Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), Horticulture Innovation Lab (USAID), East Africa Trade and Investment Hub (USAID), Netherlands Development Organization (SNV), Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC), International Institute of Tropical Agriculture (IITA), Postharvest Education Foundation, Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition (GAIN), Alliance for Green Revolution in Africa (AGRA), East African Grain Council (EAGC) among others. We are still reaching out to other partners to bridge our budget deficit. There are various sponsorship levels including Platinum level (USD 100,000); Gold Level (≥ USD 50,000); Silver Level (≥ USD 20,000); Bronze Level (≥ USD 10,000); Supporting sponsors (<USD 10,000). Other sponsorship opportunities include Gala Dinner Sponsor (≥ USD 20,000) and Lunch Sponsor (≥ USD 10,000). The benefits for each of these sponsorship levels are detailed in the sponsorship brochure.

Fresh-cut Products: Maintaining Quality & Safety Workshop
United States of America

 

Fresh-cut products are fresh fruits and vegetables that have been prepared (cleaned, washed, sanitized, cut), packaged, and held under refrigeration until consumption. The fresh-cut sector continues to develop innovative and convenient products.

Consumers demand safe, high quality fresh-cut products that have extended shelf-life, but also good eating quality. These demands require that fresh-cut processors and handlers meet rigorous standards.

This workshop provides an intensive and substantive overview of many aspects of fresh-cut production, processing, packaging, distribution and quality assurance. Participants gain working knowledge of established and new procedures through topic-related sessions and demonstrations.

In 2017, the workshop will feature discussions on fresh-cut marketing, new packaging, product physiology, microbial control, and sensory evaluation. And our practical demonstration on the impact of temperature on packaged product quality reinforces all the temperature-related discussions.

The fresh-cut industry and this workshop have changed considerably over the past 20 years. Join us if you are new to the fresh-cut industry, or if you want updates on many topics important to the success of the fresh-cut fruit and vegetable sector.

Who Should Attend

The workshop is relevant to all levels of fresh-cut produce industry professionals—from small, local and regional produce processors to large businesses with nationwide distribution. Food scientists, food engineers, quality assurance personnel and new product development staff as well as representatives from research institutions, the restaurant and Institutional food industries, and equipment, packaging and ingredient suppliers will all benefit from attending.

Topics Included: 

  • Marketing & Consumer Issues
  • Product Biology
  • Product Quality
  • Product Preparation
  • Temperature Management
  • Microbiology & Sanitation
  • Modified Atmospheres and Packaging
  • Specific Fresh-cut Product Information

International Postharvest Unlimited Conference (ISHS)
Spain

 

We are delighted to invite you to attend to the VI International Postharvest Unlimited Conference held under the auspices of the International Society of Horticultural Science (ISHS). The Conference will take place in Fruit Attraction, one of the most prestigious Fresh Produce Exhibition of Europe, in Madrid (Spain) from October 17th to 20th, 2017. The Conference is a joint initiative of the Departments of Food Science of University Miguel Hernández (Alicante, Spain) and CEBAS-CSIC (Murcia, Spain).

The conference aims to facilitate communication and discussion related to all aspects of postharvest quality, from breeding, to production and postharvest handling. There will be focused sessions to address key problems related to physiology and physiological disorders, metabolomics for quality, plant microbiota from safety to biocontrol as well as postharvest storage (CA and MA), packaging and innovations to reduce postharvest losses. There is also a visit tour to Fruit Attraction pavilions. The conference will provide the opportunity for scientists, professionals and students to present their latest findings and promote the exchange of ideas.

The scientific program comprised of plenary sessions of relevant keynote speakers, oral sessions as well as e-poster display sessions with a short oral presentation that are expected to provide discussion and promote scientific dialogues among participants on fundamental research and postharvest implications and innovations.
