Mycotoxins and post-harvest losses in sub-Saharan African countries

Global Food and Nutrition Security

The workshop was organized by the European Commission Knowledge Centre for Global Food and Nutrition Security (KCFNS) in collaboration with the main African and European scientific networks working on methods to quantify and reduce mycotoxin contamination of food and feed and grain postharvest losses (The African Postharvest Losses Information System (APHLIS), Mytox-South, Mycokey and African Society of Mycotoxicology (ASM)). Main workshop’s objective was to bring together the postharvest losses and the mycotoxins research networks in Africa and reflect on links and research priorities, which are relevant to both communities. The workshop focused on priority issues for both groups of experts as well as possibilities for integration and collaboration between the networks.
