This Agrodok is written for small-scale producers and traders in developing countries who package (or are interested in packaging) agricultural products for storage or selling. It describes methods and materials to pack foods that are grown and/or processed on farms and then transported to wholesale markets or processors, or in some cases to retailers for sale to customers.

The aim of this Agrodok is to enable producers and traders to improve (or start) the packaging of their products and to thereby reduce losses caused by damage or spoilage. Fewer losses mean greater profits.
