Global Food Security
I began applying food and packaging technologies to reduce food losses primarily in developing countries in 1992 and have been bringing post-harvest technologies (including handling, processing, packaging, storage and transportation) into the public eye ever since. I proposed a Center for Global Food Security as the first endowed professor of packaging science in the US in 1997, but international programs were not a priority for my former university at that time. I became the Executive Director of the Woodstock Institute for Science in Service to Humanity and Director of the Global Food Security program.
In 1999 I chaired the food security session for the World Food Congress X. The Global Food Security program was approved by the board of directors for the Woodstock Institute for Science in Service to Humanity (www.WISSH.org) in 2000. I represented IFT at the World Food Summit:five years later at FAO headquarters in Rome in 2002. I have been a speaker at World Food Congresses 10, 12, 14, 15 and 16, a World Packaging Congress, the Save Food Congress in Germany and many other country and regional forums. I was an IUFoST visiting professor in Vietnam 2012 and 2013.
