Fruit and vegetable processing in central Africa. The impact of urban growth on its development

Temple L., Dury S., Monkam N.. 2002. Fruitrop (English ed.) (88) : p. 8-10.

More than two-thirds of the population of the world will live in cities by 2025. The population of sub-Saharan Africa will have increased 10-fold and that of the cities will have increased 100-fold. Clarifying the impact of this growth on the fruit and vegetable processing sector in central Africa leads to wondering about the impact of urbanisation on the demand for processed products and on the conditions for the emergence of processing enterprises and about how to improve the management of supplies of raw materials to these enterprises.
