2018 Research Topic

Policies aimed at supporting food value chains by (1) improving food quality and nutrition or (2) avoiding food loss.

For example, the nutrition and food quality topic could focus on: Where in the food value chain are there opportunities to improve or maintain the nutritional quality of food available to the consumer?  What policies could influence the nutritional quality of food leaving the farm and changes in nutritional quality as it moves toward the consumer (e.g. transport, storage, processing, retailing etc.) in order to meet official country standards of nutritional composition and quality? The food loss topic could focus on: Where in the food value chain food loss happens and why? What policies could help avoid food loss?
