Company’ Strategy To Reduce Fruit Losses and Wastes • Criteria to receive raw materials for each variety • Reducing post harvest handling processes • Reducing number of conveying chain and the distances between them inside the processing lines • Proper transportation system from farm to factories • Optimum utilization of production lines’ capacities • Better storage facilities and in proper ways for un-processed materials
  6. 6. Current Problems and challenges • More wastes than the factories’ storage capacity • Huge spaces are required to dry wastes for producing animal feed e.g. in case of tomatoes • Lower number of waste-based processing companies • High cost to transport waste from one place to another
  7. 7. Suggestions and Requirements to Reduce Losses and Waste • Increase awareness and attitudes toward waste utilization and its economic value • Supporting and establishment of waste-based processing companies • New policies e.g. reducing road crossing fees/tolls • Establishment separate waste processing units in factories • Growing specific fruit varieties for processing • Establishment of factories that are close by their raw materials
