  • Introduction

    Introduction
    This special PG issue is targeted towards addressing critical inter-related food issues that are significant in enhancing processing, preservation, storage, safety, nutrition and biotechnology of agricultural produce, animal and fish products. It is intended that this special PG publication will meet the Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations established in year 2015 in the area of Zero hunger, Food insecurity and poverty. This edition will therefore be a useful guide for establishing practicable and effective policies by various governments in different countries all over the world.

    Aims
    The aim of this issue is to bring up a compendium of relevant articles in the areas of Food Science and Technology, Nutrition, Food Safety, Nutritional Biochemistry, Agriculture and extension of innovations, Economists for the purpose minimizing food and nutrition insecurity, hunger, poverty and unemployment globally as well as possible applications of some of the published information in this issue for immediate recommendations for use by policy makers in government positions and other stakeholders worldwide.

    Scope
    1. Food Processing, Preservation and storage for sustainable food and nutrition security
    2. Biotechnology as a vital tool for food security
    3. Effective value addition to agricultural crops, animal and fish products for job creation
    4. Enhancing nutritional health from dietary point of view
    5. Enhancing proliferation of cottage and small industries via food chain
    6. Enhancing food safety along the value chains
