    both food loss and food waste Food waste or loss is measured only for products that are directed to human consumption, excluding feed and parts of products which are not edible. As defined by Hodges et al. (), “food waste is the subset of food loss that is potentially recoverable for human consumption”.File Size: 1MB.

    At the European level a first definition was crafted within the FP7 Project FUSIONS (Food Use for Social Innovation by Optimizing Waste Prevention Strategies), which defined food waste as: any food, and inedible parts of food, removed from the food supply chain to be recovered or disposed, including composted, crops ploughed in/not harvested, anaerobic digestion, bio-energy production, co Author: Matteo Vittuari, Fabio De Menna, Laura García-Herrero, Marco Pagani, Laura Brenes-Peralta, Andrea Se.   Food loss prevention in perishable crops.

Some of this food would have been considered still edible but was discarded because it was perishable, past its sell-by date, or in excess of needs. There are also environmental and resource costs associated with food spoilage and loss. If 20% of a crop is lost, then 20% of the fertilizer and irrigation water used to grow thatCited by:

The programmes that have been initiated so far at the international level, amongst which is FAO's Food Loss Prevention Programme, have focused mainly an the durable food grains because of their prominence in the daily diet.

The perishable crops, because of their high moisture content, are inherently more liable to deteriorate. An international action programme of post-harvest food loss prevention in perishables of plant origin should be initiated.

A proper balance should be maintained between postharvest scientists and economists, engineers and food technologists in project formulation and implementation. Less work has been undertaken on the perishable food crops, yet they are of great importance in many parts of the humid and sub-humid tropics and contribute the staple carbohydrate portion of the diets of some to million people in the developing countries (Lancaster and Coursey, ).File Size: KB.

Fresh fruits and vegetables accounted for nearly 20% of consumer and foodservice losses, which are due to product deterioration, excess perishable products that are discarded, and plate waste (food not consumed by the purchaser). Abstract. Quality of fruits and vegetables is a combination of attributes or properties that give them value in terms of human food.

Components of quality include appearance, texture, flavor, Cited by: PHTRC has trained personnel from 22 countries on post-harvest loss prevention.

One third of food produced is either lost or wasted. According to FAO, globally there is more loss of food in the supply chain before it reaches markets than due to food waste by consumers. It is to the benefit of all of the stakeholders—farmers, handlers, processors, traders and governments - to work on avoiding harvest and post-harvest losses as a solution to producing food for a growing.
