Cyprus is preparing proposals on reducing of food losses and food waste that includes educating farmers on how to prevent losses during the production and management of their produce.

Agriculture Minister Nicos Kouyialis revealed the plan in an address to an international conference titled ‘No More Food To Waste – Global action to stop food losses and food waste’ in the Hague.

The ministry also aims to promote consumption of fresh fruit and vegetables, and the reusing of product surpluses, such as animal food and bio-fuels, Kouyialis, said, according to an official statement.

The conference is hosted by the Dutch government in close cooperation with the government of Vietnam, the UN Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO)), the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and the African Union Commission (AUC).
On the sidelines of the conference, the minister visited the “Unesco IHE Institute”, the largest international educational institution in the field of water management.
He also met with his Dutch counterpart Sharon Dijksma and discussed issues of common interest.
