Abstract:Postharvest loss is identified as a leading factor in contribution to world hunger. In order to combat it, many researchers and experts in the field spend their time learning about causes of postharvest loss, and potential solutions for it. In October of 2015, in Rome, Italy, these experts were given the opportunity to share their findings with each other at the First International Congress for Postharvest Loss Prevention. The goal of the congress was to create a roadmap for reducing and preventing postharvest losses, which was achieved within the three days. In the future, a continued global effort in reducing and preventing postharvest loss is necessary in accomplishing long term goals surrounding the problem at hand.
