The grain, the bug and the bag

As we approach 50 years post Green Revolution, food security remains a global problem with 1 in 8 still going hungry. Global hunger affects nearly a billion people and approximately one-third of food produced for human consumption is either lost or wasted. Addressing the post-harvest loss issue is critical to achieving global food security and global development.
