Today, one of the main global challenges is how to ensure food security for a world growing population whilst ensuring long-term sustainable development.Further trends like increasing urban population, shift of lifestyle and diet patterns of the rising middle class in emerging economies along with climate change put considerable pressure strain on the planet‟s resources: declining freshwater resources and biodiversity, loss of fertile land, etc. Consequently, there is a need for an integrated and innovative approach to the global effort of ensuring sustainable food production and consumption.In the meantime, while the number of food insecure population remains unacceptably high each year and worldwide, massive quantities of food are lost due to spoilage and infestations on the journey to consumers. One of the major ways of strengthening food security is by reducing these losses.
