Food preservation techniques encountered several challenges regularly in developing countries. Proper interventions must be taken into account in order to overcome the challenges and mistakes that take place during food preservation techniques. No single solution can eliminate the complexities of the challenges due to the diverse nature of the individual solutions. From the basic understanding of the science behind preservation techniques to research on complexity in food preservation, multiple initiatives need to be facilitated on an urgent basis. Therefore, a set of initiatives from all stakeholder is required to overcome food preservation-related challenges. A wide range of solution techniques in order to solve food preservation-related mistakes and challenges has been described in this chapter.
