Abstract:
This paper examines how the use of storage technology (Triple-s) has helped to improve access to vines and reduced food loss and waste. The study explored primary data collected from three communities in the East Mamprusi Municipal, North East Region of Ghana. The study adapted a food waste pyramid to analyze the impact of Triple-s in reducing losses and waste associated with OFSP production. The paper, argues that the Triple-S technology plays a dual role of contributing to reducing food loss/waste and ensuring availability of vines in the study area. The study established a link between OFSP waste/loss reduction, access to vines and the triple-s technology.
