Sanifruit will hold the Chem Free Day, a 3rd Day event on post-harvest without residues, starting May 25

"Get ahead of the Future of Post-harvest"

For the third year in a row, Sanifruit will gather together representatives from the fruit and vegetable sector to discuss proven experiences and reflect on the challenges posed by sustainable agriculture, a post-harvest free of toxic residues, and a healthy diet for consumers.

The event will start with a presentation by Dr. Elena Costa of the Institute of Agrifood Research and Technology, a company affiliated with the Department of Agriculture, Livestock, Fisheries, Food and Natural Environment, whose mission is to contribute to the modernization, improvement, boost of competitiveness, and sustainable development of the food sector. Dr. Costa will explain how fungi affect stone fruit, pome fruit, and citrus fruits in their post-harvest stage.

She will be followed by Dr. Mª José Fabra of CSIC-IATA -the Institute of Agrochemistry and Food Technology belonging to the Higher Council for Scientific Research dedicated to research in biotechnology, conservation, quality, and food science in the Valencian Community- who will give a presentation on edible coatings.
