Postharvest quality is a driver of saving food for the future and reducing food waste by 2030. Food waste and loss are currently a concern worldwide. There is no significant difference between food waste in Sub- Saharan Africa and most high-income countries in Europe and different corners of the world. Masses of ready to harvest produce is left unattended due to shortage of labour or drastic climatic conditions. Both food losses lead to 1/10 of carbon foot print. The food waste reduction is limited. The initiatives in developing countries do not provide enough training nor tools to support postharvest experts in combating food waste.

The Postharvest Tool Kit and Services Foundation (PTKSF) was designed to support the mission en vision of the Postharvest Education Foundation (PEF) that aims at combating food waste in developing countries using easy to use tool kits at nominal cost. The tool kit is used by postharvest professionals and extension officers, Trainer of Trainees (ToT), e-learning program graduates and small-scale farmers in the developing countries. The Foundation considers supplying tool kits, dry cards and hermetic bags as additional items directly to small scale farmers.

The PTKSF strives to establish a strong network with postharvest professionals, launch tool kit training programs at in-service and postharvest training centres and institutions worldwide. Currently the organisation operates from The Netherlands. Most of the tool kit components resemble those provided by the PEF and are purchase from Amazon, QA Supplies and within the country. Dry Cards, 4-in-1 environmental meter and Penetrometer and other additional postharvest equipment’s are included to the list to measure CO2, Moisture content, temperature at harvest and during storage. Hermetic bags supplied will safely guard stored grains from moulds and other storage pests. Our aim is to distribute at least 20 tool kits annually at lowest price ranging from €300 – €400 depending on the customers wish list.
