Johan Van Asbrouck with Rhino Research presents on a new way for drying and storing seeds and produce at the 2016 Symposium on Horticultural Science in Phnom Penh, Cambodia.
One-third of food produced around the world is wasted every year. The cold chain is a popular practice for reducing food waste. The dry chain is novel practice for reducing food waste and has more potential for impact than the cold chain. Food loss is due to insufficient drying, pests, contamination, and reduced resilience. Drying beads, DrumDry, DryBox, and FlexiDry are technologies developed by Rhino Research to address factors contributing to food loss.
