Creative, cost-effective solutions needed to prevent fruit spoilage due to climate change

According to Bloomberg - "India wastes more food than almost any other country partly because of spotty refrigeration. Climate change is making the problem worse. Soaring temperatures are raising the stakes for India’s farmers.

India wastes nearly 80 million tons of food at the retail and consumer level, second only to China.

As much as 15% of fruits and vegetables are lost after harvesting.

India is the world’s largest producer of bananas, which are highly perishable."

Along with improving cold storage facilities, food entrepreneurs should introduce something like Mangalore banana buns in these regions
