THREE NEW MAJOR UNIVERSITIES ON THREE CONTINENTS JOIN WORLD FOOD PRESERVATION CENTER® LLC
The Universidad Politécnica de Cartagena in Spain, the University of Manitoba in Canada, and Jimma University in Ethiopia, have joined the World Food Preservation Center® LLC, located at Shepherdstown, West Virginia, USA The World’s food supply is shrinking. One one side we have a rapidly ballooning world population and on the other side we have a rapidly deteriorating agricultural environment. Global warming has now come on the scene and portents to greatly restrict crop production. It has been shown clearly that even with our present advanced technologies we are not going to be able to feed the world’s rapidly exploding population by just producing more food as we have in the past. Since one-third of the food that we already produce is lost between the time that it is harvested and consumed it makes sense that we must save more of this food if we are to avoid a disastrous world food shortage crisis. Twenty major research universities and two major research institutes on six continents have joined the World Food Preservation Center® LLC to mount a “Food Preservation Revolution™” directed toward substantially reducing postharvest food losses in developing countries and diminishing world hunger.
The World Food Preservation Center® LLC in conjunction with its “Sister” University, the University of Nairobi, has organized the “1st ALL AFRICA POSTHARVEST CONGRESS AND EXHIBITION that will be held March 28-31 at the Safari Park Hotel, Nairobi, Kenya.
The 1st ALL LATIN AMERICA AND 1st ALL ASIA postharvest conferences are being planned as well.
Dr. Charles L. Wilson, former USDA scientist and Founder/Chairman & CEO of the World Food Preservation Center® LLC states, “We are pleased that these new universities are joining us to help strengthen food security in developing countries by educating young student/scientists in the latest technologies for the postharvest preservation of food in their countries.”
