Postharvest Technology Center

To reduce postharvest losses and improve the quality, safety and marketability of fresh horticultural products. Our Goals are:

  • Be a leading source of research-based information on the postharvest quality, safety and marketability of fresh horticultural products for the produce value chain.
  • Effectively communicate information and knowledge on postharvest technology that enhances the quality, safety and marketability of fresh horticultural products.
  • Catalyze innovative and enhanced collaboration among center members, industry, government, and other academic institutions, nationally and internationally.
  • Be financially self-sustaining.

Through the postharvest research and extension programs of 11 Extension Specialists, we strive to provide relevant information to California growers, shippers, marketers, carriers, distributors, retailers, processors, and consumers of fresh horticultural crops.
