• Decreasing Food Waste-From Farm to Market

    Thursday, August 24, 2017
    Join us for a discussion about preventing crop spoilage and reducing food waste, which will be critical to feeding a world population projected to grow to 10 billion people by 2050. We will discuss how improved disease and pest resilience in major staple crops can preserve yield in sub-Saharan Africa and elsewhere. We will also discuss initiatives to decrease loss and waste in the processing, transportation, storage, and sale of food products throughout the world, but starting here in St. Louis.
