Food waste is a tough and profound question in the world. Although the development of agricultural technology has effectively promoted the increase of vegetable and fruit production, one-third of global vegetable and fruit production are still wasted. This issue is caused not only by food overproduction or overstock, but also by customers’ requirements for fresh products. This paper aims to thoroughly explore the reasons for food waste and provide some solutions to solve this problem, especially from the “Agri-fresh produce supply chain management” perspective. Solutions include improving the cold-chain logistics system and intelligent methods. To clearly analyze reasons for food wastey, this paper interprets the issue from three dimensions (customer, food supply chain, and farm) and then explores solutions.
