Food Chain Partnership in India: Sustainable production of high-quality food
This issue is not just about providing sufficient quantities of food, however; it is also about changing consumer habits, which are further stimulating the demand for fresh, affordable food products. Consumer quality awareness continues to grow, and increasing numbers of people are placing value on transparent and sustainable production conditions.
A food product undergoes numerous production, processing and quality control stages before it lands on the plate. Bayer CropScience is working together closely with food chain players such as growers, transporters, dealers and the processing industry to ensure that consumers can always count on first-class goods. Food Chain Partnerships exist in more than 40 countries, covering over 125 fruit and vegetable varieties. “By cooperating with all partners in the food chain, Bayer CropScience helps growers around the world supply the highest quality agricultural produce,” explains Dr. Birgitt Walz-Tylla, Head of Food Chain Management at Bayer CropScience. “Through our range of modern and sustainable crop protection solutions, technical know-how and competent consulting services, we are able to offer producers and dealers high-quality goods for resale or processing. End consumers can ultimately look forward to a wide variety of healthy and tasty products all year long.”
