The concept of sustainability, with the intention of ensuring humanityÕs long term well-being, drives many industries in todayÕs competitive world. The importance of sustainability, as the core competency of many corporate strategies, requires organisations and strategic decision-makers to consider the 3Ps (people, profit and planet) rather than focus, to the exclusion of all else, on profitability for the success of their firms. Whilst food security remains a global sustainability challenge, post-harvest grain losses account for the majority of grain losses occurring in developing countries. This study intended to explore the interplay between the reduction of post-harvest grain losses and the sustainability strategies of agri-grain firms to, firstly, identify enablers and inhibitors to implementing corporate sustainability strategies of these firms and, secondly, establish a comparison between the reduction of post-harvest grain losses and other enablers influencing the triple bottom-line in the grain industry.
