The urgent need for sustainability within the food producing industries and agriculture has turned the interest of research to investigate new non-thermal technologies, nanotechnologies and other practices in postharvest treatment of crops and fruits. Subsequently, there is a need for a new guide covering the latest developments in this particular direction.

Food Losses, Sustainable Postharvest and Food Technology provides solutions to postharvest treatment technologies. It explores modern non-thermal technologies, focusing on postharvest losses and quality of fresh-cut products. In addition, it discusses the implications for postharvest technology research, policies and practices.
