Dates are an important fruit, especially in many African, Middle-Eastern and Asian countries. In recent years this fruit has gained significant importance in terms of global commerce. During the period 1990–2009, global production of dates saw an increase of 219% and this trend is expected to continue as per FAO projections. Some of the major challenges confronting date fruit production and commerce are issues related to postharvest handling technologies, use of appropriate processing and packaging technologies, food safety aspects and quality assurance.

This book provides contemporary information that brings together current knowledge and practices in the value chain of dates, from production through to consumption. Featuring coverage on production and postharvest technologies, innovative processing technologies, packaging, and quality management.
