Case of study: Mr Ortolan.

Mr. Maester Ortolan, 49 years old, has been a rice farmer for about 30 years.
He transport his grains for approximately 600 kilometers.
During this transport, it is estimated that around 5% of grains drop out of the truck and stay in the roads.

Mr. Ortolan said:
"There have been a great improvement in harvesting and planting techniques in the last decades, however the post-harvesting steps still being a bottleneck in the production system".

We are losing in trasportation hundreds of possibilities to feed more people in Brazil and around the world.

Mr. Ortolan is with us!

#ExploreMode One-third of food is lost due to transportation..

A really good and informative article by National Geographic, check this out:

http://news.nationalgeographic.com/news/2014/10/141013-food-waste-national-security-environment-science-ngfood/

"The Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the United Nations, which keeps tabs on what's grown and eaten around the globe, estimates that one-third of food produced for human consumption worldwide is annually lost or wasted along the chain that stretches from farms to processing plants, marketplaces, retailers, food-service operations, and our collective kitchens.

At 2.8 trillion pounds, that's enough sustenance to feed three billion people. In the United States, the waste is even more egregious: More than 30 percent of our food, valued at $162 billion annually, isn't eaten. Pile all that food on a football field and the layers would form a putrefying casserole miles high."

#Exploremode How much do we waste in transportation?

The article "Food Security: The Challenge of Feeding 9 Billion People" by Toulmin and colaborators, showed waste at food transportation in developing countries as a major postharverst problem.

This is the data we are searching, to focus on a feasible sollution.

Check out some extra data and our ideas in the next days.
