WHY WE CARE

In 2019, the Food & Agricultural Organisation (FAO) of the United Nations reported that post-harvest losses accounted for 30% of food waste. Food waste is a threat to food security notwithstanding the environment consequences from the emission of greenhouse gases in the decaying process. Commercial Farmers Union of Zimbabwe, estimates that the country’s post-harvest and food losses go as high as 40%. This problem is detrimental to farmers economic gain and stunts economic growth for all value chain actors. Due to a lack of resources, preservation of food remains at its lowest in rural Zimbabwe.
