Past EventsInternational Conference on Agricultural Postharvest Handling and Processing
The world’s population is growing fast and people become more aware of the close relationship between food and health. FAO estimates that by 2050 global food production needs to be increased by 70% and at the same time global demand for energy will increase by at least 36%. In addition, global production for food and energy must be done in such a way that it minimizes negative environmental impacts. As a result, demands for safe, nutritious, functional, tasty, convenient foods, ecofriendly food packaging, and renewable (bio)energy will continuously be increasing. In this case, innovative agriculture that makes the best use of available resources, maximizing quality, minimizing waste, and reusing resources whenever possible will become the key to meeting such challenging demands and the backbone of tomorrow’s green economy. These crucial roles of agriculture require breakthroughs and integrated approaches in agricultural postharvest and processing technology.
For this reason, The Indonesian Agency for Agricultural Research and Development (IAARD), in collaboration with International Commission of Agricultural and Biosystems Engineering (CIGR), is organizing this conference where international research scholars, academicians and practitioners from business and industry are invited. This conference is aimed at introducing and discussing recent advances in agricultural postharvest and processing technology.
