This book begins at the production stage, with activities to reduce postharvest losses and increase use of by-products streams (waste) and continues through food manufacturing and beyond, presenting insights to ensure that energy, water, and other resources are used most efficiently and environmental impacts are minimized. . Sustainable Food Systems from Agriculture to Industry presents the research and advancements in efficient, cost-effective, and environmentally food production and ways they can be implemented within the food industry. Filling the knowledge gap between understanding and applying these advancements, this team of expert authors from around the globe offer both academic and industry perspectives and a real-world view of the challenges and potential solutions that exist for feeding the world in the future.
