Globally, about one-third of the food produced for human consumption is lost or wasted. In developed countries, much of that loss is the result of consumers throwing away millions of tonnes of edible food each year.

In the developing world, most loss occurs either in the field before a crop is harvested, during harvest, handling or afterwards through inadequate storage facilities.

Storing harvested grain in silos is not only a reliable approach for securing good prices, owing to the automation of grain transport, they are also cost-effective, as they result in lower long term operational costs.

It comes as no surprise then that the costeffectiveness and large holding capacity of silos is driving the global sales of grain storage silos. Such economic incentives mean grain is often stored for long periods, prior to processing.

During this time, grain quality and safety may deteriorate without appropriate intervention - particularly when the location where the grain is to be stored presents its own unique set of challenges.
