Environmental Impacts of Fruit Production in Brazil

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter (peer-reviewed)

Abstract

Over the last 20 years, production of fresh fruits, both in crude and processed form, has increased significantly around the world (Fig. 6.1). Rising incomes and growing consumer interest in product variety, freshness, convenience, and year-round availability are among the main reasons for this increased demand (Diop and Jaffee 2005). Fruits and vegetables are rich sources of micronutrients, needed by children for optimal growth and development. Most national and international dietary guidelines are in agreement that consumption of fresh fruits and vegetables is a healthy food choice and yet needs to be increased. The World Health Organization (WHO) recommends a minimum daily intake of 400 grams of fruits and vegetables, especially for children, and many countries have programmes to promote consumption (FAO/WHO 2004).
