Agricultural and food wastes, by-products and co-products are produced throughout the entire agri-food sector. Huge amounts of both edible and non-edible portions of agricultural products are currently underutilized or simply wasted. Therefore, sustainability issues and challenges are of primary importance in the agri-food sector. This special issue aims at gathering papers related to sustainable practices and technologies that may find application across the entire agri-food sector, and which can lead to the creation of sustainable value chains in the farming, commodity processing, and food production and distribution sector. Therefore, we believe your research might fit the Special Issue.
