  9. Optimizing Yield For Food Manufacturers

    In order to meet the global population’s growing demand for food, research by the Food and Agricultural Organization of the United Nations (FAO) predicts that the worldwide food manufacturing and processing industries need to increase their total output by 70 percent by 2050. This article will explain several ways to enhance the efficiency of food production.

  10. Time To Sort Out Food Waste

    Almost a third of all food produced worldwide is never eaten, leading to 1.3 billion tons of food waste each year. This includes around 45 per cent of all fruit and vegetables and 20 per cent of meat. Just one quarter of this wasted food could feed the 795 million chronically hungry people around the world.
