Abstract

Sustainably feeding the people continues to be a challenge in the present times. Enormous amount of food wastage aggravate this problem. In most medium- and high-income countries, food wastage mainly occurs at the consumer end. However, in lower-income countries, food wastage primarily occurs within the supply chain. Lack of infrastructure for transportation, warehousing, and refrigeration in developing countries cause significant post-harvest losses. While research shows that developments in food supply chains can reduce food wastage, no systematic research has been done so far to show the possible relationship between the use of technology in food supply chains and food losses. This paper attempts to address this gap by studying the supply chains of different organizations and their food wastage.

Keywords: Food waste, food supply chain, post-harvest loss, cloud platforms
