As the world’s population continues to rise, the significance of food security -- the ability to provide reliable access to affordable and nutritious food -- is more important than ever. In fact, the world’s population is expected to reach 9.1 billion by 2050, and global food production will need to nearly double by 2050 to keep up.

The significance of strong food security innovations have substantial impacts on countries, particularly in the developing world. These innovations have the opportunity to reduce hunger, enhance food security, and improve national, regional and global security. However, many countries across the world do not have the resources to develop effective food security systems in a large-scale environment that can benefit their populations as a whole.

Blumberg Grain, a leading global food security company, is working around the world to help these countries improve food security, reduce post-harvest loss and increase the quality and marketable output of harvests by providing harvest protection systems and technology.

Blumberg Grain provides the most comprehensive, stateof- the-art storage units, technology and management systems for post-harvest food safety and security. Whereas in some countries, post-harvest loss can reach 40 to 50 percent due to depletion by insects, rodents, pilferage or inclement weather, Blumberg Grain’s fully integrated crop and food security systems can reduce post-harvest losses of grain, produce, and other perishables to five percent or less.

The company modernises agricultural value chains, increases the quality and marketable output of harvests, enables efficient market timing, and significantly boost exports of agriculture products.
