Food Wastage occurs across all segments of the food supply chain and is often the result of the complex interactions within the supply chain. Action to mitigate the amount of food wasted in one segments likely impacts the chain downstream and upstream – it is therefore critical to foster partnerships and collaborative action throughout the food supply chain.
The conference's timely theme provides an opportunity for policy makers and other players in the food supply to explore timely topics and solutions as a kick start towards finding lasting and sustainable solutions to the perennial challenges of food wastage and losses in Ghana and West Africa.
