The discipline of postharvest enables harvested fruits and vegetables to reach their markets with optimal quality and safety. The Symposium will focus on the biological and technological postharvest research of fresh horticultural produce, including postharvest storage, treatments and underpinning mechanisms, quality evaluation, packaging, handling and distribution of fruit, vegetables and flowers.
The first of the Keynote Speakers have been announced. Professor Juliet Gerrard, the Prime Minister’s Chief Science Advisor, will open the symposium with an entertaining and insightful perspective on science and horticulture in New Zealand. The program also includes a visit to the Plant & Food Research Te Puke Research Centre, and a tour of Hobbiton, with dinner at the Hobbiton Green Dragon pub.
