This course is designed for technical professionals responsible for quality assurance, marketability, safety, logistics, research and associated activities in fresh produce supply chains. The target audience consists of persons active in breeding, production, trade, retail, tech developers and equipment builders with a focus on (postharvest) quality. No prior knowledge on the course topics is required.
Novel sensing technologies provide tools to increase yield, improve postharvest quality and make better decisions in fresh supply chains and thus reduce food waste.
After successful completion of this course, you have learned the basic principles behind different sensing technologies and modeling approaches for analyzing physicochemical properties of fresh produce. Furthermore, you will understand the capabilities and challenges and can start applying new sensing approaches in your own business.
