Challenges in Food Distribution and Processing
We are interested in exploring a holistic food systems approach and want to better understand specific challenges that manifest in the transit from farm to table. The distribution includes aggregation, transportation, consolidation, inspection, processing, packaging, storage, etc.
- What are issues facing the different stakeholders involved with the above mentioned processes during distribution?
- What are the problems that arise during distribution that negatively influence the environment?
- What are the problems that arise during distribution that negatively influence human health?
- How severe are these challenges and how severe is their impact?
