Technological innovation in the fruit & vegetable sector: the path for the future.

Sacmi e Sammogroup organized a dedicated event for the main fruit and vegetable producers in the Piedmont region.

On Friday 13th March a special event was held at Dronero, Cuneo, sponsored by the Tecnogranda Agri-Food Innovation Centre with the collaboration of Sacmi and Sammagroup.

In order to draw a general picture of present distribution requirements and production opportunities in the fruit & vegetable sector, the theme of the convention held in the morning was based on the role of new technologies; not in terms of costs but in terms of added value – a winning factor which can help to overcome the difficult economic-financial crisis.

At 10 o’clock, following welcome greetings, a number of important speakers from this sector representing Tecnogranda, Consorzio Kiwi Gold, Chiquita Italia, Apofruit, Università degli Studi e Politecnico di Torino, Creso, Coop Italia and Agribusiness gave their presentations.

The afternoon session, on the other hand, was entirely dedicated to technological proposals, including those which have resulted from a key technical-commercial partnership created in recent years between Sammo and Sacmi. A two-line Sammo calibrating system was presented for handling delicate fruit. This system guarantees quality inside the fruit through the use of non-destructive NIR (Near Infra Red) technology.
Developed by Sacmi, the NIR BOX system is ideal for in-line applications and allows the user to determine internal parameters for each single fruit (sugar content, degree of ripeness, hardness and any defects) whereas the NIR CASE system is an invaluable and innovative portable technology for checking fruit quality on a sample basis «from the field to the warehouse», using non-destructive methods.

Sammogroup also offered the new Flowpack “Vela” model packaging machine designed for the handling a special film which prolongs the shelf-life of the product.
