Minimising post-harvest losses
That’s about 1.3 billion tonnes of food wasted – about the weight of over 300 million lorries – annually!
A huge contributor of this wastage is post-harvest loss: produce that are discarded due to deterioration of colour, texture, flavour, and nutritive value arising from inappropriate handling, transportation, storage and more.
Cultiveat minimises post-harvest losses via:
Grown to order – Careful growth planning ensure that produce mature right before they are due for delivery. This ensures freshness while reducing storage time which can cause chiller injury.
Short supply chain – We pack and deliver produce directly to consumers, restaurants, and retail outlets. With minimal change of hands, we are able to properly handle the produce and reduce damage.
On-the-job training – Farmers and packers are equipped with produce knowledge and handling skills, so produce quality is maintained.
