Reducing the amount of food that is lost or wasted along supply chains each year can significantly impact food security, environmental sustainability, and economic development worldwide, making it a key societal issue that must be addressed. The ADM Institute for the Prevention of Postharvest Loss invites you and your organization to support this international congress and become a sponsor.

There is an urgent need for a global community of practice for postharvest loss (PHL) prevention that can share knowledge and resources, leverage partnerships, and implement meaningful interventions for loss issues. This Congress serves as a first-of-its-kind platform for convening actors and stakeholders across sectors in public, private, and civil society.

We are working diligently to plan a dynamic, high-level, focused event that will produce actionable outcomes surrounding key themes, such as measurement of losses and several others. The Congress will also form a global coalition that will drive those outcomes forward. As a sponsor of the Congress, your organization has the opportunity to showcase its work and support for reducing food losses and increasing supply chain efficiency to a diverse audience who could greatly benefit from USAID's participation at the Congress. We invite you to partner with us on this important event.

Sponsorship options are available below, and others are potentially available upon request. Please contact wozniak5@illinois.edu to become a sponsor or with any questions.
