Postharvest consultancy in Russia

Writtle College is providing postharvest expertise to a major producer of potatoes, carrots and onions in Russia. Dr Chris Bishop, Reader in Postharvest Technology, is providing postharvest consultancy for the Black Earth company, which farms 270,000ha.

He is responsible for providing advice on the handling and storage of potatoes, carrots and onions between the field and the store, before being sold to the customer. The majority of the potatoes go to a crisp factory near Moscow owned by Pepsi Co. Recently, Chris was joined by Senior Lecturer in Agriculture and Farm Management Henry Matthews who carried out an audit on the process and production of the potatoes and carrots.
