Modern technology makes it possible to capture more data than ever before across the fresh produce value chain. How this data can be used to protect brands and consumers is the subject of one of six technical solutions to be addressed on the Tech Stage at the Fruit Logistica fair, being held in Berlin February 3-5.
Located in Hall 7.1c at stand B-08, the Tech Stage will be the place to learn about technical solutions in machinery, technology and packaging. Participation is free and all presentations will be simultaneously interpreted into English, German, French, Italian and Spanish.
Other topics include how paper-based packaging can help companies pack their fresh produce safely and conserve natural resources, and details of the winners of the ‘FInish future prize for ICT in the fresh supply chain’ – a chance to learn about innovative software solutions already tackling coming challenges in the fresh supply chain.
