Cooperativa Campofrigo: open day for mainstream retail chains and key customers from the fruit and vegetable industry

19th November: the Open Day at the new Campogalliano highlights Sacmi’s Nir technology

Following its launch three months ago, the futuristic Cooperativa Campofrigo fruit and vegetable processing plant, equipped with Sacmi machinery, will, on 19th November, be opening its doors to the main retail chains and its own customers. The plant, located at Campogalliano (Modena), has a surface area of 4000 m2 and is equipped with cutting-edge machines for the quality control of fresh fruit; it is capable of sorting and packing about 100,000 Kg of locally produced pears per day and shipping them to specialised outlets and mainstream retail chains both in Italy and other countries. The processing system, fully developed by Sacmi, includes four innovative fruit sorting lines based on Nir (Near infra red) technology. Using infrared rays, Nir allows producers to carry out non-destructive, high precision measurement of all the key parameters (sugar content, ripeness, acidity, diameter and weight plus any brown core or water core) that determine product quality on every single fruit. Furthermore, the use of sophisticated software means that the producer can keep track of the product from the field to the final package. This plant open day will give visitors the opportunity to see the plant in operation. All the big retail names (Coop-Conad-Esselunga) will be there, as will key operators from the Italian and foreign fruit and vegetable industry. Before the official ribbon-cutting there will also be an in-depth meeting on fruit and vegetable quality at which Dario Beltrandi, (Beverage&Packaging General Manager), Roberto Marcheselli (Nir Project Manager) and Enzo Pagliarani (Nir Project Sales Manager) shall be representing Sacmi.
