Following its success last year, the training programme on Postharvest Technology & Management was upgraded and re-launched on April 26th to 28th by Wageningen University and Research (WUR) in Beijing with the support of the local partner Yunong (Beijing) Education Technology Co., Ltd., which aims to share valuable knowledge and introduce advanced technologies to Chinese enterprises.
According to Qing Xiwen, CEO of Yunong and an alumna of WUR, the course is designed to teach how to prevent postharvest losses and prolong the shelf life of agricultural products, which is very important for enterprises to enhance the added value and their market competitiveness. Yunong has introduced the postharvest course of WUR, the world’s top agricultural university, into China to help agricultural enterprises learn the world’s cutting-edge post-harvest fresh-keeping technology and management concepts without going abroad.
The programme attracted numerous technical managers, company founders and services companies from China’s agricultural field, including in fruits, vegetable, floriculture and e-commerce. During the three-day programme, about thirty trainees discovered and explored a whole new world of postharvest, integrating all the new cutting-edge knowledge and technologies obtained into a set of systematic and practical theories. They also learned from hands-on experience of lecturers and from each other during experiments and discussions.

(Maxence) Paillart from Wageningen Food & Biobased, where the business development Ir. Zhai Shujia was also involved on behalf of Wageningen Food & Biobased Research as translator.
