Agrofood sustainability is a key word in today′s world, and has prompted several novel and impressive research works globally. Communicating lab– or office–generated knowledge to local farming communities is an important part of dealing with the sustainability challenges faced by the agriculture and food sectors
Sustainability Challenges in the Agrofood Sector presents the core aspects and challenges encountered in the agrofood (or agri–food) sector, with a focus on the future of sustainability. Various multi–disciplinary aspects and a range of topics concerning the impact of environmental or climatic changes on the agriculture and food sectors are discussed, including: the food energy water nexus, supply chain management, food diversification, diet and human health effects, food wastes, sustainable food–processing technologies, food tourism, judicial and regulatory issues and educating consumers on the significance of sustainability. Written by leading experts in the field, each chapter addresses the realities of sustainable agriculture and food systems and discusses novel approaches to address the issues and challenges they throw up.
Sustainability Challenges in the Agrofood Sector is the most up–to–date and complete work published on this topic, providing researchers, graduate students, agri–food scientists, industrial professionals and policymakers with readily accessible reference material.
