Fruchtwelt Bodensee is one of the world’s largest trade fairs in the field of commercial fruit growing and distilling. It presents a wide range of topics and provides information on the latest developments in the field of fruit growing, harvesting and plant protection. At the show, AgroFresh will share a wide range of innovative freshness solutions in Hall B1, booth 424.
TSW Fruit and Vegetable Fair is one of the largest fairs of the horticultural sector in Central and Eastern Europe, where the pre-season innovations will be previewed and conferences will be held on strawberries, organic and sustainable gardening, fruits, vegetables and berries by leading scientists, politicians, and horticulturists of the industry. The AgroFresh Polish team will be available at booth D49.
At both shows, AgroFresh will highlight their latest innovations including FreshCloud™ an integrated digital platform that improves planning, produce quality and profitability. FreshCloud uses aggregated data, machine learning and artificial intelligence to sustainably address food waste reduction and derive quality and supply chain insights, allowing real time decisions with three digital technology offerings:
- FreshCloud Harvest: use real-time analytics to expand your harvest window for optimal color, size and firmness.
- FreshCloud Inspection: drive accuracy and consistency across your operation with streamlined quality inspections and intelligent end-to-end data visibility for real-time planning and decision-making.
- FreshCloud Storage: manage fruit in storage with confidence using dynamic sampling points taken during CA storage to help detect issues, anticipate room openings and reduce waste at pack out.
FreshStart™ Disinfect 25-5 and FreshStart™ Disinfect 25-15 are disinfectants for water in contact with fruit certified for organic use by CAAE. These solutions are available for pome fruit and stone fruit and degrade quickly without leaving residues, helping to decrease contaminants in water treatment and making water recycling more efficient and less costly, working as a complement to fungicides for optimal rot control.
AgroFresh will also showcase its flagship SmartFresh™ Quality System, the original and industry leading 1-MCP ethylene management technology that revolutionized the apple industry 20 years ago. SmartFresh puts ripening “on pause” through the ethylene management of fruits and vegetables. It also has a proven impact on sustainability and energy savings. Recent studies show the average energy savings of up to 7500 kWh during 6 months of storage (36% savings) through the combined use of SmartFresh and controlled atmosphere storage. This solution is globally available for a wide range of crops such as pears, plums, peaches or kiwifruits. Additonally, AgroFresh will feature AgroFreshTM Verified, an analysis and reporting service that provides customers technical support and confirmation of successful application through in-house testing labs.
