Title : FRESH FRUITS AND VEGETABLE STORAGE TRAINING
Category : Business Consulting
Storage of fresh fruits and vegetables was used extensively by our ancestors to keep food after the harvest season. In these days, post harvest losses is a great concern...... Proper marketing of perishable commodities such as fruits and vegetables often requires some STORAGE to balance day-to-day fluctuations between harvest, distribution and sale or for long-term storage to extend marketing beyond the end of harvest season. Storage of fresh fruits and vegetables prolongs their usefulness and in some cases, improves their quality; it also controls a market glut.
