CPHDA specializes in postharvest handling and processing. From on-farm grading and sorting, and sophisticated pack-house construction and operation, to the introduction of storage options and warehouse receipts program, CPHDA-facilitated postharvest improvements reduce crop losses and expand product shelf-life.

Similarly, the development of processing opportunities and competitive processing industries expands employment and supply opportunities, particularly for women and youth; expands returns at source; and offers an alternative to highly perishable items in terms of distant markets.
