Tata Steel develops mobile canning concept to cut food loss

09 January 2018 

Tata Steel has developed a mobile canning line concept which will allow farmers, anywhere in the world, to process and preserve their produce on site, helping to reduce food loss dramatically at source whilst generating additional revenues for farmers.

According to the United Nations Environment Programme, a third of all food production worldwide is lost or wasted before it even reaches consumers including the postharvest handling, storage, processing, packaging and distribution stages.

Tata Steel’s mobile canning line concept will allow producers to establish a production line to make cans and fill them with fruit or vegetables on site. This means crops can be preserved quickly before spoiling, reducing food loss.
