'World hunger is on the rise for the first time in decades and crop yields are on the decline. With a rapidly exploding world population we are heading toward a disastrous food shortage crisis. Since one-third of the food that we already produce is lost between the time it is harvested and consumed substantially more of this lost food must be saved to avoid a major global food crisis. ‘Preventing food losses and waste’ (ed. Yahia) provides a comprehensive compilation of the resources and programs available globally to substantially and sustainably reduce postharvest food loss and waste.'
