3rd All Africa Post-Harvest Congress and Exhibition

3rd All Africa Post-Harvest Congress and Exhibition will be hosted by the African Union Commission and organized by diverse partners, including development partners, private sector actors, academic/research institutions, and civil society.

This exhibition will be held on 13- 17 September 2021 in a hybrid event with virtual sessions and limited physical sessions/activities at the AUC Headquarters in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. The theme for this conference is Postharvest Loss Reduction for Sustainable Food Systems. This theme is aligned with the 2021 call to action towards sustainable food systems. It is evident that food loss and waste reduction is critical in ending hunger in sustainable food systems. When 1.3 billion metric tons of food is wasted annually in a world where 820 million people continue to go hungry every day, it is time to change how we produce and consume our food.

3rd All Africa Post-Harvest Congress and Exhibition comes on the backdrop of the global Pandemic, COVID-19 which has exposed the vulnerability and inefficiency of local and global food systems. Significant volumes of food have been wasted as food distribution systems were disrupted, especially in low-income countries with inadequate postharvest infrastructure. Therefore, better postharvest management to reduce food loss and waste is a key strategy towards achieving food and nutrition security in sustainable food systems.
