Innovation in vegetable handling recognized through the nomination for the United Fresh Produce Innovation Award 2017 and for the Fruit Logistica Award 2014. The latest developement includes the next generation in transplanting equipment. BrimaPack is currently a leading player in vegetable, and some fruits, handling solutions
BrimaPack offers innovative solutions for vegetable handling solutions for Iceberg Lettuce, Broccoli, Cauliflower, and various other vegetables and fruits. One of them is the the “NicePack” packing systems giving superior shelf life and lower packing costs compared to other technologies.
The new BrimaFilm AF has been exclusively developed to increase the shelf life of broccoli and other brassicas such as cauliflower and cabbage. The extension of the shelf life is at least 5 – 8 days (at 17 degrees centigrade). This is reached in a natural way by creating an optimal atmosphere for Broccoli storage and display.
Through its focus on supplying System Integrated Solutions, rather than individual machines, BrimaPack offers complete packing solutions for pack house and field packing operations, which saves up to 50% on packaging costs and enhances shelf life and product presentation.
BrimaPack has been nominated in the category ‘Best New Packing/Processing Equipment’ for the United Fresh 2017 Produce Innovation Awards, with the VeTrac e-Drive Planting/Harvesting Rig.
