Harnessing innovation to reduce food loss and waste in germinated brown rice production in Thailand

Reducing food loss increases both food supply and income. This was the case in Thailand, thanks to some simple technical innovations in germinated brown rice processing.

A Japanese-funded project brought together FAO, The Thai government and Mahidol University to explore ways in which to reduce food waste in micro-, small and medium food processing enterprises in the Northeastern part of the country.

The project worked with germinated brown rice value chains, identifying actions on the ground, food waste hotspots and their underlying causes during processing, distribution and retail.

Suggested innovations were introduced to help diminish the levels of food waste. Watch the video to learn more.
