How will you feed the world?

“While my research is specifically focused on peaches and nectarines in the Ontario region, it has implications in the developing world, both in Africa and in Asia where fruits like mangos and bananas have up to 50% losses in production. Basically the farmers grow the fruit and half of it is wasted. My research will help them to preserve the fruits for a longer time, thus improving farmer incomes and getting fresher, better-quality produce to consumers.”

A graphic shows the process of feeding 9 billion people. White circular links connect several yellow circles that each show different icons: one shows three illustrated figures; another shows a wheat sheaf; another a truck; and another shows a beaker and test tube. The circle at the centre of all of them captures the words 'Feed 9 Billion People' and it is flanked by an illustrated knife and fork in black.

“The University of Guelph is well known as the food university. I feel I’m very well prepared to face the world, because our professors are very involved not only until we graduate, but also in what we are doing after we graduate. They prepare us both in soft skills and hard skills, so that we are able to achieve what we set out to do.”
