Panama dumps half of its farm produce

Tuesday, October 25, 2016


An estimated 30 to 60 percent of Panama’s agricultural yield is lost every year to spoilage caused by inefficiencies in harvesting and transportation, an issue that has failed to be addressed by the current government.

The four post-harvest centers, the first link between the farmers and consumers, do not have the basic equipment for agricultural products. Only one of the centers, in David, is fully operational.
