In addition to solving the problem of increasing food production, it is also necessary to look for ways to reduce its losses

About 30% of agricultural products are lost on the way from the field to the consumer in Kazakhstan, writes KazTAG with reference to the words of the head of relations and partnership of the Kazakh bureau of the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the UN Kairat Nazhmidenov.

“On the way from the field to the consumer’s table, up to 30% of food is lost or thrown away due to improper storage and poor logistics. This is a global average. And in Kazakhstan, according to some indicators, there is an even greater loss of food, ”Nazhmidenov said at the parliamentary hearing“ Issues of the Development of the Agro-Industrial Complex ”on Friday.

“We very often say that we need to increase production by 10%, 15%, 20%. But maybe we need to think about how to reduce losses, which reach up to 30%? ” – suggested Nazhmidenov.
