Zero waste

Zero waste
Basil Tops

A bunch of fresh basil consists of 80% stems and only 20% leaves. 2BFresh is presenting a new product at FRUIT LOGISTICA: Basil Tops (image) give customers exactly what they need – just the tops, so they're not paying for the weight of unused stems. They also save time, because the leaves no longer need to be separated from the stems. 2BFresh Basil Tops are freshly harvested, clean and ready to use with zero wastage. The basil leaves are a rich dark green and highly fragrant with a concentrated sweet flavour. According to the exhibitor, the shelf life of Basil Tops is just as good, if not better, than conventional products.

Source of natural proteins and increased antioxidant content

The black garlic "Amefruits gourmet" (image) is made with the best Spanish purple garlic grown in Las Pedroñeras. The selected bulbs are fermented for approximately 40 days at controlled temperatures between 65°C and 80°C and a specific humidity level. The result is an energising black garlic containing natural proteins that reduces cholesterol and triglycerides and has ten times more antioxidants than the untreated bulbs. The production process is based purely on temperature and humidity and is 100% natural. Black garlic has many benefits. Known for its anti-aging properties, it is a great source of collagen, controls blood sugar levels, regulates cholesterol, and helps in the treatment of respiratory problems.

Improved produce quality and longer shelf life

Improved produce quality and longer shelf life
Anacail in-pack ozone generation

The outstanding Anacail System (image) uses plasma technology to convert a portion of the oxygen inside a food pack into ozone. Ozone is a fast-acting germicide that reduces spoilage organisms and pathogens on the surface of foods, increasing shelf life. The ozone breaks down completely to form oxygen within minutes. A number of benefits were shown in extensive trials, including significantly longer shelf life and better produce quality. Other benefits rage from fewer in-store losses and customer complaints, to a lower number of spoilage organisms and pathogens. The patented Anacail technology fits perfectly into a production line after the pack sealing.

Better growth and more vigorous plants

Better growth and more vigorous plants
B-Mox carrots

Research teams at Bejo have developed the innovative B-Mox seed enhancing formula to give plants a stronger start. Based on new technology, B-Mox enhances the power of the seed, stimulating its growth in the earliest stages and improving the vigour of the plant. During the entire growth period, plants exhibit improved stress tolerance and better overall health as a result of a more fully-developed root system. Bejo has been testing the formula extensively over the past few years. Results show that crops develop more smoothly and uniformly during their growing period, typically leading to better flavour performance as well. Additional benefits of B-Mox include lower business risk, reduced vulnerability of crops to diseases, and higher yield up to 15%. B-Mox primed seed is available for carrot (image), parsley root and bunching onion – also for the organic grower.

Ready-to-eat organic quality mangos

 Ready-to-eat organic quality mangos
Mango sorting machine

Four mango ripening chambers and a new mango sorting machine (image) were recently installed at BioTropic's main site in Duisburg. Following an initial test phase, BioTropic will be supplying ready-to-eat organic quality mangos from January 2018. The two high-tech solutions enable the exhibitor to offer organic mangos whose excellent taste is anything but a coincidence. Here's how it works: The fruits are delivered to the facility before they are ripe. After a brief storage period, the remaining quality measures take place in the mango ripening chambers where humidity and temperature restart the ripening process in a natural way. This enables optimal development of the aroma and sugar content (Brix value). After the precisely-timed ripening, the mangos enter the quality control phase managed by the sorting machine which individually checks each fruit. For example, the checks include pressure testing to determine the fruit's firmness.

Organic convenience products from seeds

 Organic convenience products from seeds
Propagation cubes (left), flixGreen micro vegetables (top right) and EasySeed Pellet

Carl Pabst propagation cubes (image) can be either germinated in the special paper container or placed in the soil. Developed in an elaborate production process, the paper is impermeable to water for three to four weeks. Roots grow through the container into the soil and the paper degrades over time. After water is added, flixGreen micro vegetables (image) are grown in the packaging and harvested after four to eight days. The remaining material can be organically composted. The organic convenience product helps consumers to avoid waste and always have fresh minerals and vitamins at home. It also reduces storage costs for retailers. EasySeed Pellets (image) are produced according to a patented method. Covered in a layer of clay, soil and minerals, they can be simply thrown on the ground where they germinate in the clay pellet and grow into the substrate. The pellets are available with grass seeds, flower mixes, selected herbs, and vegetables. All three exhibits will celebrate their world premiere at FRUIT LOGISTICA 2018.

Unique biostimulant for higher yield and better quality of fruiting vegetables and fruit

Unique biostimulant for higher yield and better quality of fruiting vegetables and fruit
Biostimulant DCM VITACT F

The biostimulant DCM VITACT® F (image) combines a microbial and an organic component. In this process, special bacterial strains (Bacillus sp) are mixed with specific complex plant-based carbon chains. This offers a number of key advantages, Firstly, the structure of the carbon chains in DCM VITACT® F closely resembles that of humic and fulvic acids, which directly influence root structure. Secondly, Bacillus subtilis colonises the rhizosphere and releases the phosphorus present in the soil, making it available to the plant roots. Root development is improved with more roots and a large number of fine root hairs, both outdoors and in organic (potting soils) and mineral (rock wool) substrates. And, thirdly, improved nutrient uptake (for example, N, P, K and trace elements) stimulates top growth, increases vitality and optimises root and plant health.

Active MA-MH bag for the fresh produce industry
Trendlife Gold Plus compared to conventional packaging

The Trendlife Gold MA-MH bag is the world's first bag of its kind for the fresh produce industry. It releases nano-sized compounds into the modified atmosphere in which the fresh product is placed. Nanotech compounds released from the bag film into the atmosphere react with excess water molecules released by the product. These nanotech compounds, or nanotubes, can destroy excess water molecules and maintain a specific humidity level. The bags control the decomposition process indirectly by reducing humidity inside the bag. Deka Plastik developed a special version of Trendlife Gold to inhibit the growth of pathogens and prevent infections, particularly during the most critical storage phases. The company also designed bags capable of delaying decomposition by releasing antimicrobial substances (image).

MICROSEED WR is a unique microgranular fertiliser developed specifically to combat drought stress thanks to its ability to increase soil water retention (image). The innovative microgranular fertiliser formula contains plant-based polymer. This enables it to absorb and release water slowly (over a period of up to four months) under drought stress conditions such as high temperatures or sandy soils. According to the exhibitor, MICROSEED WR is the only patented formula of its kind. Measuring only 0.3 to 1.0 millimetres in diameter, the fertiliser pellets provide essential elements for root development including nitrogen, phosphorus and zinc.

Each roller temperature separately customisable

Conventional roller drying systems are often inefficient and, over time, they build up bacteria that is difficult to eliminate. This in turn can lead to the premature breakdown of the packed potatoes. The Haith Smart Dryer features a bed of stainless steel rollers. An independent heating element inside each roller can heat the roller surface temperature to up to 100ºC. Each roller is connected to the control system to allow the temperature to be set individually as required. The heat can then be gradually reduced as the potatoes move along the rollers, allowing the operator to determine how dry the tubers should be. Stainless steel rollers for easy disinfection prevent the risk of bacteria being transferred to the vegetables. The dryer has a special device to automatically remove the potatoes if the rollers stop for any reason.

Special gas mixture in the packaging

Special gas mixture in the packaging
LIFE+ active packaging system

LIFE+ (image) uses Equilibrium Modified Atmosphere Packaging (EMAP). Creating a special gas mixture inside the packaging involves three elements: an unperforated deep-drawn tray with anti-fog coating, an active pad, and a laser-perforated sealing film. The trays are designed to maintain the modified atmosphere and prevent circulating air from reducing the effectiveness of the active pads. The Life+ system can be used with two types of absorbent pad developed in partnership with Sirane Group. The ANTB active antibacterial absorbent pad inhibits mould and fungal growth, and the ETHA active pad absorbs ethylene, slowing the ripening process of the packaged fruit. The packaging is sealed with a film with micro laser perforations developed in partnership with Plastopil. It has been specially designed to ensure a specific gas exchange and maintain the natural metabolism of the fruit, preventing fermentation.

Printing round objects without bruising

Printing round objects without bruising
Fruit with printed logos

A method for printing fruit and vegetables with food colouring has been developed by Kellermeister Manns GmbH. The trick is to print round objects of varying shape and diameter without bruising. The company uses a process with special food dyes that, unlike laser engraving, do not affect the fruit's taste or shelf life. With the patent-pending method developed by the exhibitor, even delicate tomatoes can be printed without any marks or bruising. Anything is possible, from customer logos for marketing purposes, growers' logos to identify the brand, or batch numbers for traceability (image). Apples, pears, oranges, bananas, tomatoes, cucumbers, sweet peppers and many other fruit and vegetable varieties can be visually enhanced in this way.

Product innovations from L.Gobbi

The "Microline" product line is based on microbiological compounds to restore the biological fertility of soil (rhizosphere) and plants (phyllosphere). The action of these compounds leads to improved development and health of root and leaf systems, solubilisation, increased availability of nutrients in the soil, and residue degradation. The "Energemma" formula is rich in boron and zinc. These promote bud and fruit formation after harvest. The formula is enriched with amino acids, in particular glutamic acid and glycine as well as humic acids. The powder formula "Rust-Ger" is based on trace elements and kaolin. It prevents or limits fruit rust by improving appearance (in particular in the case of pomaceous fruit) and limits sunburn by reflecting the sun's rays.

AJWA dates

M1 Distribution, a young company based in Belgium, recently introduced AJWA (image), a 100% organic date variety. According to the company, the date has a unique texture and colour as well as healing properties. The AJWA date is a soft, dry variety grown only in Medina, Saudi Arabia. Al Ahsa in the eastern part of the country is where the fruit is gathered, processed and packed in the world's largest palm oasis with more than three million date palm trees. From here, AJWA dates are transported to the exhibitor's warehouse and distribution centre in Antwerp. Dates are a symbol of hospitality. Despite their small size, they are packed with nutrients and very rich in fibre, minerals and vitamins.

Optimal rotation, easy maintenance and high capacity

The Marcelissen knife peeler has enjoyed great popularity with customers for many years. It is suitable for peeling and re-peeling all root and beet vegetables. To meet customer demand, the exhibitor has developed a bigger and even better machine. The new "SMT 1000-4000" knife peeler has been designed in such way that it has no "dead" angles. Removable active peeling beams enable quick and easy maintenance. Combined with optimum rotation, easy maintenance and high capacity, it represents a great achievement in mechanical engineering and a huge step forward in food processing, the exhibitor says. Peeling can be done dry or wet. The machine can also be combined with a very accurate infeed, a waste solution, a weighing belt or optical sorting for best results.

Water-based ozone treatment for mushroom cultivation facilities

Water-based ozone treatment for mushroom cultivation facilities
Mushroom cultivation facility

Italian company MET presents a new ozone technology application for mushroom cultivation (image) at FRUIT LOGISTICA 2018. After a year of testing at Cristian Vallorani's GBC Funghi, mushroom cultivator and MET partner, the water-based ozone treatment was able to replace all chemical products. The treatment covered all rooms and all of the equipment. The new and completely residue-free method guarantees safe conditions for the operators. In addition, the fumigation of empty rooms before delivery was successfully replaced with gaseous ozone, guaranteeing sterility. This dramatically reduces costs for the growers compared to traditional systems. Excellent results were also achieved in terms of the shelf life of the post-harvest product.

Temperature data logger with Bluetooth technology

Temperature data logger with Bluetooth technology
Ethylene filter and Coollogger

The ethylene absorption filters from Ozeano make it possible to maintain low ethylene levels and thus guarantee optimal vegetable preservation. Because they do not come into direct contact with the fruit and leave no residues, the filters are not considered additives. The developers' experience in the sector has given them a better understanding of the transport and storage process and the problems that may occur, resulting in a new, patented version of the ethylene filter (image) that that prevents staining in refrigerated containers and maximises filter efficiency. The filter will be presented at FRUIT LOGISTICA 2018 for the first time worldwide. Ozeano has also recently launched the Coollogger (image), its own temperature data logger brand. The patent-pending device works with Bluetooth technology and is unique on the market, according to company sources.

Higher cycle rate and more stable packs

Higher cycle rate and more stable packs
Berry tray

Packaging Automation Ltd. will be presenting its new, patented motion-control technology for high-speed tray sealing at FRUIT LOGISTICA. This system is specifically designed for packing all varieties of fruits (image) and vegetables. At the trade fair, the company will be exhibiting its flexible, fully electric SL4 Motion tray sealer, which incorporates this technology. According to the exhibitor, the development of this "motion" technology enables trays to be sealed at a higher cycle rate than with any comparable machine on the market. Speeds of up to 22 cycles per minute are possible in a single-lane format. The increase in speed is due to the interpolating nature of the transfer arms working in conjunction with the in-feed and stepping conveyor. This allows for a continuous feed into the seal cycle. Another benefit of the motion-control technology is the much higher stability of packs on transfer than with conventional packing.

Up to 50% grass fibre

Up to 50% grass fibre
Greenliner packaging material

Scheufelen introduces Greenliner (image) at FRUIT LOGISTICA – an innovative, extremely ecological packaging material produced from up to 50% grass fibre. Greenliner is a paper for corrugated board production and is suitable for fluting and liner layers. The new product differs from other fresh fibre packaging materials in terms of the grass fibre content used. Grass fibre is an innovative raw material manufactured in pellet form through the purely mechanical conversion of sundried grass (hay) and requires absolutely no chemical treatment. Other advantages are the significantly lower energy (6000kW/h for one tonne of pulp fibre vs 150kW/h for one tonne of grass fibre) and water consumption (approx. 30,000 litres per tonne of pulp fibre, zero litres for grass fibre). And unlike tree cultivation, which in Europe takes at least 20 years, grass is available for harvesting several times a year.

The new DRR cutting machine (image) manufactured by PND cores and cuts apples and peaches into chips or rings. It consists of a rotating plate with eight individual stations for the fruit. The mechanisms for the three operations are located above the plate opposite the loading point. The plate with the fruit rotates step by step; when the plate stops, the relevant operation is performed. The operator places the fruit on the empty plate and the three mechanisms core, push and slice it. In the first mechanism, a pneumatic piston powered by a three-phase electric motor moves the rotating core tube in a downward motion to core the fruit. The core tube sizes are interchangeable. The second mechanism pushes the fruit to the third operation, where a round insert slices the fruit into chips or rings.

Sicilian lemon juice in a practical portion pack

Sicilian lemon juice in a practical portion pack
ACTI LEMON portion packs

Drinking water with lemon juice in the morning before breakfast is a new trend that has spread across Europe and other parts of the world in the past few years. The benefits range from a balanced pH and fewer infections, to improved digestion and weight loss. A recognised "lemon specialist" for more than 40 years, Polenghi is picking up on this healthy trend and launching ACTI LEMON (image) on the market. The eight daily portion packs containing 100% pure Sicilian lemon juice are as rich in valuable nutrients as a freshly squeezed lemon. The practical 15 ml daily portion is equivalent to the amount of juice in half a lemon. The exhibitor hopes the new product will encourage more people to adopt this healthy "morning ritual". ACTI LEMON offers many advantages compared to fresh fruit: no waste, no squeezing, the right amount in less time and 100% pure Sicilian lemon juice. The manufacturer recommends that food retailers place this product near the refrigerated section.

Redpack NTS-BMR for round products

The Redpack NTS-BMR (image) is a customized production for wrapping round products using shrink wrap, such as white or red cabbage. Thanks to numerous innovative machine features, what is achieved is a higher cyclic output as compared to other common machines, while maintaining excellent shrinking results. The typical problem of products rolling away is prevented from the start with the special feeding function. They are then held in position with paddle units before transporting them to the sealing jaws. In the shrink tunnel, the product arrives onto a special plastic link belt instead of onto rollers, where it is safely transported to the product outlet. The ruggedly produced Redpack NTS-BMR made of stainless steel is low-maintenance, can be expanded individually and can also be used on a harvesting cart. Minimum labour utilization also significantly reduces packaging costs.

Seed producer TomaTech has teamed up with four of the world's leading producers – Mastronardi Produce (Canada), Stoffels (Belgium), La-Palma (Spain) and Perfection Fresh (Australia) – to create the TOMA'MUSE tomato (image). This unique collaboration between a seed grower and vegetable producers is one of the first of its kind. The seed grower owns the variety, while the vegetable producers own and market the TOMA'MUSE brand in their respective markets. This innovative go-to-market strategy means that the TOMA'MUSE brand will be distributed across three continents (North America, Europe and Australia), becoming one of only a few international brands of its kind. TOMA'MUSE delivers a full sensory experience. Its unique strawberry-like shape, rich burgundy colour, distinct texture, and outstanding flavour make it a very versatile tomato.

Bright pink ribs and dark green leaves

Bright pink ribs and dark green leaves
Buttonhole Kale (top left), Hadrian celery (top right) and Warrior parsnip

Hadrian celery (image) is the newest darker green hybrid celery variety from the independent British vegetable breeding company Tozer Seeds. It has performed well in trials in Europe and the USA, showing good height and excellent weight. During early sowings it has shown intermediate tolerance to bolting, and in the summer it is less prone to producing side shoots than other varieties. The Warrior parsnip (image), the newest hybrid of this market-leading root vegetable variety, carries its weight well down the length of the entire root. Warrior has shown strong resistance to root canker and is ideal for storing through to late autumn. Buttonhole Kale (image) is one of the products in the growing range of colourful cabbage varieties. The bold, bright pink ribs contrast against the dark green, sweet leaf. Both the rosette head and outer leaves can be used for visually attractive and delicious dishes.

Transporting fresh products from the Iberian Peninsula to Latin America

Transitex is a global logistics operator with headquarters in Lisbon and a network of offices in 19 countries. While the company handles the logistics for all kinds of cargo, the transport of fresh products is its main area of expertise. Transitex will be offering an LCL fresh cargo service in 2018, connecting the Iberian Peninsula to Latin America. According to the company, Transitex is already a leader in the containerised shipment of fresh fruit from the Mediterranean region to Brazil and holds a strong market share throughout Latin America. The exhibitor sees this as the time to expand its offer to include fractionated shipments. These already exist in the Iberian market and allow for different quantities and a greater variety of products to reach the increasingly demanding markets in Latin America. The new offer will initially be to Brazil and Mexico and, depending on demand, could be extended to other markets in the future.

Simple and safe packaging of fresh herbs and loose lettuce leaves

Simple and safe packaging of fresh herbs and loose lettuce leaves
Filling system for herbs and leaf lettuce

ULMA Packaging has introduced a completely new vertical filling system (VFFS) to the market. This system makes packaging fresh herbs and loose lettuce leaves much easier. Manual intervention during the packaging process is minimised, saving growers time and money. The VTI 640 V VFFS solution (image) developed by ULMA (patent pending) features a suction unit that quickly and reliably pulls the bag downward without damaging it. The product is handled gently throughout the process without blockage of the infeed area. This innovation ensures customers a fast return on investment. Improvements offered by the VTI 640 V model represent a cost-effective alternative to ultrasonic sealing, since the product sits lower in the bag and is outside the sealing zone.

Consistent flavour, good fruit quality and long shelf life

Consistent flavour, good fruit quality and long shelf life
Large, easy-to-pick berries

Consistent flavour, good fruit quality and long shelf life are bound to make two new raspberry varieties, Malling Bella and Malling Charm (image), strong favourites with consumers and retailers, says breeder NIAB EMR. They are the first two raspberry varieties from the East Malling Rubus Breeding Consortium, a partnership originally formed in 2015 between NIAB EMR and the Swiss nursery company Lubera, and more recently joined by commercial soft fruit specialists WB Chambers, Onubafruit and Perfection Fresh. Malling Bella is a vigorous, mid-season primocane fruiter, with large, easy-to-pick berries that offers heavy yields and is suitable for double cropping and long-cane production. Malling Charm is an early primocane variety, with moderate vigour and short-to medium-height canes. It also produces large, easy-to-pick berries and is a good potential premium variety because of its sweetness and juiciness.
