Postharvest is an essential handbook for students, practitioners and growers to understand the science and technology of the harvesting, handling, storage and transport of fruit and vegetables to the consumer. This sixth edition has been substantially revised to capture the current and future trends in postharvest technology, and to help the industry meet the constantly evolving needs and expectations of consumers.
Relevant in fruit and vegetable industries all around the world, Postharvest aims to outline the importance of fruit and vegetables in the human diet, explain the basic science that underpins postharvest behaviour, explore the technologies that underpin the modern supply chain for fresh produce, and explore emerging consumer issues on quality, food safety and sustainability.
