At a workshop in Lagos, organised by the Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition (GAIN) and the Postharvest Alliance for Nutrition (PLAN), the stakeholders lamented that farmers were losing a lot after harvests to poor storage facilities, market inefficiencies and bottlenecks in the value chain, adding that it was impacting on national nutritional levels.
Federal Institute of Industrial Research, Oshodi (FIIRO) Director-General Mrs. Gloria Elemo said food and nutrition security would ensure that vital ingredients for healthy living were sustained, noting that efforts should not be spared to preserve perishable foods.
She added that fresh fruits and vegetables produced in the North hardly got to the South due to transport challenges, stressing that public and private sectors must redress the situation.
“In the process moving these items to its consumers about 50 per cent of these fruits and vegetables are lost due to bad packaging and poor postharvest handling.
“The country depends so much on importation whereas we have the capability to provide food for the citizenry, so if the necessary infrastructure is put in place to totally reduce postharvest losses we would not have the problem of hunger or malnutrition in the country.”
Mrs. Elemo said the recent Nigeria Cold Chain Summit (NCCS) in Lagos, was to review strategies to eliminate losses in food storage, calling on the private sector to join hands with government to accomplish the task.
Senior Technical Specialist, GAIN, United States, Roberta Lauretti-Bernhard, said efforts were ongoing to respond to countries that have malnutrition as well as post-harvest challenges.
“Postharvest loss is also nutrition loss. So a platform was drawn that is a combination of the private sector, government and institutions that have a strong objective of ending not just postharvest loss but malnutrition.
“GAIN interest in Nigeria stems from her high malnutrition burden and also high incidence of postharvest loss in fruits and vegetables thus leading to loss of micronutrients.’’
