Apeel Fruits and Vegetables: Freshness that Won’t Go to Waste™
From apples to avocados, every fruit or vegetable has a protective peel that keeps it fresh. Made from plants, Apeel adds a little extra “peel” to the surface of fresh produce to slow water loss and oxidation — factors that cause spoilage. Because Apeel protects and extends shelf life and transportability, it dramatically cuts waste and enables suppliers to bring fruits and vegetables at their most delicious and nutritious to market.
Available for organic and conventionally grown produce and an ever-growing number of categories, Apeel is the only proven end-to-end solution for freshness. We look to nature to help the global food system improve quality, reduce waste and ensure an abundant future for our planet.
Real-time ethylene readings bring shelf-life extension
FoodFresher is a machine that guarantees an air free of ethylene in the cold rooms of the different players of the supply chain, from the producer to the retailer.
The machine contains four modules filled with BEFRESH+, and under the system the contaminated air goes through the modules filled with granules, where the ethylene is eliminated.
FoodFresher, unlike other similar equipment on the market, incorporates a sensor at the outlet of the machine, which gives operators a reading of the ethylene level in the air.
In this way, operators can detect when the granulate begins to lose its effect and thus proceed to its change, to ensure the fruit is preserved in an ethylene-purified environment, avoiding ripening acceleration and extending the shelf life of fruits and vegetables.
Direct Access to Real-Time Data
With new USB ports available on DeltaTrak’s FlashLink RTL Prime In-Transit Loggers and BLE (Bluetooth Low Energy) In-Transit Logger, receivers have direct access to trip data.
The FlashLink RTL Prime In-Transit Loggers are available in 2G and 3G models. Both versions monitor and report temperature and location during the transport of perishable temperature-sensitive products, while the 3G logger also offers a light sensor.
The FlashLink BLE In-Transit Logger lets personnel see real-time temperature readings in facilities and pre-coolers as well as truck location during transit by downloading data from the logger using a smartphone app. These reliable single-use in-transit loggers send trip data, at regular intervals, to the cloud, where it’s always available.

Felix Instruments – Applied Food Science
Mango Quality Meter for Rapid Analysis
Every mango grower and distributor faces two problems in measuring dry matter and brix: using a microwave or dehydrator is time- and labour-intensive; and gathering dry matter is destructive, destroying the fruit and by default, eating into the grower’s profits. So we created a solution.
Using NIR-based technology, state-of-the-art spectrometry and rigorous modelling to assure accuracy, the Mango Quality Meter precisely measures both dry matter and brix, reducing what has for years taken large pieces of equipment and hours of laborious work, to the push of a button.

JBT International (Thailand) Ltd.
High-quality steaming for a range of applications
JBT FTNON has introduced new steaming technology called Dynamic Cloud Control, which considerably improves the energy efficiency of steamers.
The advantages of the DCC technology, compared to conventional steaming systems, include a reduction of steam and energy consumption; the reduction of retention time by using a 100% steam environment; no steam loss and therefore no need for energy-consuming steam exhaust systems; and the fact that no steam loss reduces the burden on factory air circulation systems.
The special JBT FTNON control system measure the height of the steam cloud and automatically control the steam injection, depending on the capacity. As this is controlled automatically, steam loss is reduced to almost zero.

Fruitfirm, the non-destructive firmness tester of blueberries and other produce
Fruitfirm is a small, hand-held, self-contained device for the non-destructive firmness testing of blueberries and other produce. FruitFirm allows firmness to be monitored throughout the supply chain, and is robust and simple to use. The device, which was developed in New Zealand as a research tool, can be configured to test the ripeness and maturity of a range of fruits, such as blueberries, tomatoes, stonefruits and so on.
FruitFirm meets the need for a QC device that can rapidly and easily quantify firmness, in a non-destructive way. It works by measuring the deceleration of a tiny hammer that impacts the surface of a fruit via a small non-bruising and non-penetrating tip. An in-built processor records the resulting collision, analyses the waveform and displays a value on a digital display.
