Can be recycled in a number of ways
Pura Natura from Adercarta

When it comes to fresh items like fruit and vegetables, it's particularly important to consumers that they can see the contents of the packaging. One alternative to plastic is the semitransparent packaging paper Pura Natura from Adercarta. The patented produce bag from Italy is especially sustainable and tear-resistant thanks to its innovative base design. The material is moisture-resistant and complies with European foodstuff directives. Pura Natura can be recycled in a number of ways: its paper printed with ecological water-based dye is biodegradable and can be composted, e.g. as a bag for organic waste. It can also be recycled with paper.

Over the field faster

Over the field faster
: The new reverse rotary cultivator from Collari makes it easier to prepare the soil for sowing.

On the occasion of FRUIT LOGISTICA 2020, Italian manufacturer Collari presents its new reverse rotary cultivator. This agricultural machine only requires one cycle to dig up stones and harvest residue, thereby preparing the soil for new sowing. It levels and packs the earth, but can also form dams and plant the seeds. Because there is no other preparatory or follow-up work, the producer saves on time. The fuel consumption is also lower, and the machine uses it efficiently. Working with the reverse rotary cultivator improves the drainage of the soil, because excess water can quickly seep away. The fine, even earth of the surface layer offers ideal conditions for the subsequent sowing or planting.

Longer life for fresh products

Longer life for fresh products
Bluezone technology keeps fruit and vegetables fresh for longer

The Bluezone® was originally developed for the US military to make its provisions last longer. Now the technology is available on the European market. In order to improve the storage and transport of produce, the system works with UV-reinforced oxidation. By emitting ultraviolet light into the air, Bluezone® quickly eliminates the hormone ethylene that makes the products ripen faster. Moulds and bacteria are also destroyed. No filters or additives that have to be replaced or disposed of are required. Thanks to this technology, which is sold in Europe by Turkish company Deisko, riper and thus more flavourful fruit can be stored without perishing. Storage temperatures can also be increased, which saves on energy.

Harvesting more efficiently

Harvesting more efficiently
Harvesting, sorting and weighing with the VENTUM harvesting machine from Hortech

According to Italian manufacturer Hortech, the harvesting machine "Ventum" is over 50 per cent more efficient than traditional models. This increase is due in part to an air tunnel with two conveyor belts, one of which moves almost twice as quickly as the other. This allows for looser distribution of the harvested goods, making it easier to clean them via air stream. The machine also automatically packages the harvested goods into boxes and monitors its speed. The harvest can thus be directly brought to the transport vehicle, which means greater efficiency, flexibility and saved costs for the producer. And because the driver is sitting directly above the harvesting machinery, they have complete control over the harvesting work.

Smart packaging for tropical fruits

Smart packaging for tropical fruits
Smart Ripe from ILIP provides information on the ripeness of the packaged fruits.

Packaging normally serves to protect and preserve fruits. The smart packaging Smart Ripe from ILIP combines these characteristics with an additional function: it informs the entire supply and value added chain as well as the consumer of the fruits' ripeness stages by monitoring certain quality parameters with an sensor-operated and battery-free RFID tag. It can detect deviations of some dielectric parameters of the fruit flesh depending on the ripeness stage. This information can be decoded with an external reading device and informs the user of three stages of ripeness and potential types of preparation. This way, the consumer can plan the right times and types of use. After initial tests with avocados, the packaging has now been developed to cover other tropical fruits.

The plastic pallets in the RS series from Plasgad are a flexible solution for the logistics industry

Plasgad is introducing a new generation of pallets with its RS series. While their products were formerly categorised into light pallets for lorry transportation and moderately heavy pallets with integrated skids for heavy loads, this innovation from the Kibbutz Gadot in Israel combines these features in one product.

The new zucchini variety Karma F1 is particularly heat-resistant

Italian company Progene Seed is marketing a new, light green zucchini under the name of Karma F1. It is very sturdy during transport and use, meaning it requires fewer packaging materials for storage than other varieties do. With its shiny, robust skin, it is not sensitive to post-harvest processing. Consumers are attracted to its cylindrical, homogenous shape at the produce stand. During cultivation the plant is easy to work with due to its short internodes and dark green leaves. It can withstand high temperatures, making it suitabl for planting in southern regions. It can be planted in the field and greenhouse during the summer, or in a tunnel greenhouse in the spring and summer.

Bacterial protection for potatoes

Bacterial protection for potatoes
The ethylene generators from Restrain offer long-term bacterial protection for potatoes.

Because of the EU's ban on chlorpropham (CIPC) as a germination inhibitor for potatoes, producers have to seek out alternatives. Restrain, a company that is already operating in 36 countries, offers one sustainable option: ethylene generators. They have been used to store potatoes for over 14 years, and are equipped with unique sensors that ensure stable, low ethylene content. The generators have a holding capacity of 20 litres, meaning they do not have to be filled every day unlike other catalytic converters. Restrain improved the sensor technology for the new generator models B100 and B200. The generators require very little maintenance. They leave the factory completely calibrated and are thus ready for use right away.

Healthy and flavourful

Healthy and flavourful
The tomato YOOM™ combines healthy characteristics with an unmistakeable flavour.

With its new tomato variety YOOM™, Syngenta Seeds is presenting a fruit at FRUIT LOGISTICA 2020 that stands out for its unmistakeably unique flavour. Simultaneously sweet and tart, it has its own umami note as well. This flavour was combined with a high content of the flavonoid anthocyanin. It is believed that this water-soluble plant pigment has a positive impact on health. YOOM™ is easy to see in the vegetable cupboard for its violet colour. The tomato is cultivated in multiple countries by select Syngenta Seeds partners and can be purchased in branded baskets, individually, or on the vine. YOOM™ is primarily supposed to attract a young and health-conscious target group.

Spicy asparagus with a kick

Spicy asparagus with a kick
The pickled asparagus tips from Teboza are a healthy and delicious snack

Family-owned company Teboza works along the entire chain of production, from the development of new varieties to cultivation to the sale of asparagus. And this company from the Netherlands is bringing an innovative product to FRUIT LOGISTICA: freshly peeled and spicy pickled asparagus tips in a glass jar. The pickled asparagus is made at times when a lot of fresh asparagus is available, preventing excess production on the market. At the same time, they meet customers' demand for easy-to-eat vegetables. The pickled asparagus tips' flavour is between that of pickles and normal asparagus in a jar, and the base juice is enriched with spices and herbs. This delicacy can be served cold, and is tasty as a side to a hearty snack or in a salad, for example.

Better blueberries with AI

Better blueberries with AI
With the new KI-Tool LUCAi™, KATO260 sorts blueberries with even more accuracy.

The KATO260 sorting machine was developed by BBC Technologies and Tomra Foods with the artificial intelligence-based tool LUCAi™. It allows the machine to sort the fruit even more precisely and selectively. LUCAi™ is specially suited to the characteristics of blueberries and can better qualify premium quality products through its more precise sorting, thereby meeting higher customer demands. Each berry is photographed by multiple cameras along a blueberry sorting line. LUCAi™ identifies traits that some people cannot perceive with the naked eye, and classifies the berries accordingly. The system can process up to 2,400 single images per second, with speed and precision facilitated by 17,408 graphic processors.

Plums without secrets

Plums without secrets
UNIQ Plum determines the ripeness of plums with high-resolution camera technology.

At FRUIT LOGISTICA 2020, the company UNITEC is presenting its market-ready UNIQ Plum technology that securely determines the inner quality of plums. To do this it uses high-resolution cameras that reliably and accurately reveal the organoleptic "secrets" of the plums. It does so with great care so as to preserve all the valuable characteristics of these fruits. UNIQ Plum grades the fruits by specific ripeness parameters and sorts them based on the storage and sales requirements for the various markets. Producers can thus offer the end consumer plums based on their respective taste and expectations. UNIQ Plum can also be easily integrated into the fruit and vegetable centres' software.

Precisely portioned

Precisely portioned
The RP1 template filler from Urbinati precisely fills plant containers.

Urbinati is introducing its new template filler: the RP1. This machine, with a funnel capacity of 480 litres, allows for the filling of round and quadratic pot shapes with soil. Customised screens let it fill the pots evenly without wasting any soil. The base density and sealing are determined by the steel blade cross-rotor, a key part of the machine. The functions of the main rotor, such as speed, direction of scoop rotation and number of rotations, are controlled by an SPS and can be easily programmed via touchscreen. The RP1 processes tablets up to a total height of 200 millimetres and adjusts the height of the middle group while the height of the conveyor belt remains constant. This is beneficial if the RP1 is mounted alongside other machines.
