About this book

The use of appropriate storage technologies is an important way of improving food security and lowering the risk of famine in the countries of the South. This book focuses on the storage of the staple commodities such as grains and root crops, but it also covers other major food groups such as oils, fish, fruit and vegetables. Useful reading for volunteers training for food processing projects, their trainers, and non-specialists already involved in projects and seeking specific information on technology choice, this is one of a series of UNIFEM Food Cycle Technology Source Books designed to help increase productivity and improve technology choice.
