V International Conference Postharvest Unlimited
Cyprus, June 2014.
It is our pleasure to announce the Scientific Program of the V International Postharvest Unlimited Symposium. The program is comprised of 17 keynote talks, 69 oral presentations and 130 poster presentations. Exceptionally, this event is supported by the COST Actions FA1104 'Sustainable production of high-quality cherries for the European market' and FA1106 'An integrated systems approach to determine the developmental mechanisms controlling fleshy fruit quality in tomato and grapevine'.

The conference aims to readdress this problem and provide a forum in which academics, industrialists and students may interact to provide real world solutions for the fresh produce industry.
Key topics: The conference will cover the entire fresh produce postharvest supply chain and include the following topics:
