Writtle University College: Post Harvest Technology
|Institution||Writtle University College|
Post harvest Technology is concerned with the research in to and application of new and advanced systems and processes to ensure that harvested crops receive the appropriate treatments from cropping through to sale to ensure waste is minimised. It is an increasingly important and expanding industry which requires technically aware graduates.
Environmental concerns are now a major consideration of all aspects of production and supply chain. Worldwide postharvest losses can account for up to half of production; it is vital that supermarkets and their supply chains reduce their carbon footprint, both in terms of the impact on the economy and the environment. The industries providing the packaging, grading, storage and transport of fresh produce are actively seeking graduates who have an awareness and understanding of the issues involved.
