Fruit Logistica 2019 Spotlight includes following products:

High-tech grading of pears (1st picture)
Pears Sort 3 is the innovative unisorting technology from the UNITEC Group for grading pears. Thanks to extreme grading precision and reliability of the Pears Vision 3 system, fresh produce centres working with it can guarantee distributors and consumers consistent pear deliveries that are competitive and trusted in the marketplace. Pears Sort 3 technology enables extremely careful, non-invasive grading while maintaining organoleptic characteristics. It is also versatile as a multi-analysis technology suitable for almost all types of pears. Along with its versatility, the Pears Vision 3 system stands out for its ease of use. Calibration is simple and the numerous quality parameters can be easily and intuitively configured by the customer.


Kiwi grading technology, precise and reliable
(2nd picture)
Kiwi Vision 3 is an innovative UNITEC technology that, according to the exhibitor, grades kiwis with unprecedented precision and reliability. A variety of parameters can be set, including inner quality, outer quality, softness and defects in terms of shape, weight, size or colour. The ability to classify these parameters independently and in different combinations enables Kiwi Vision 3 fresh produce centres to implement differentiation strategies. Kiwi Vision 3 technology is suitable for all types of kiwis with green or yellow pulp. The system is characterized by extremely gentle handling of the fruit while preserving its natural properties. The Kiwi Vision 3 system captures collected data for traceability and integrates it into the software of the fruit and vegetable centres using this technology.


Inspectra² inspection system, consistently and accurately evaluate external and internal (3rd picture)
Following a highly-successful market launch last year, Compac, a member of the TOMRA group, announced the worldwide introduction of the Inspectra² internal inspection system for fresh produce. Inspectra² was effectively implemented and improved fruit cleaning by 20%. In line with the interests of growers, this ensures that only the bad fruits are sorted out and the good ones kept for sale. Together with the award-winning Spectrim platform, Inspectra² can be used to classify external defects. Compac packhouses are now capable of consistently and accurately grading the external and internal qualities of apples, avocados, kiwis and citrus fruits at production speeds. External appearance is important for buyers’ purchase decisions, but internal quality is critical for consumer satisfaction. Fresh produce should always taste as good as it looks. This is the main objective for Inspectra².

Antioxidative cold dehydration at below 40°C to obtain soft-DRY fruit snacks (5th picture)
Vitaina was created from the idea of developing a practical and healthy snack that contains all-natural vitamins and minerals. The exhibitor places equal importance on protecting the environment and promoting sustainable agriculture. After years of research on conventional drying methods and the related primary oxidative factors, Vitaina developed and patented the Soft-DRY® antioxidative cold dehydration process. This makes it possible to exclude the primary oxidative factors and gently dry the fruit below 40°C, while preserving the natural taste, colour and the healthy properties of vitamins and minerals. This process is reversible: rehydrating the fruit returns it to the original form and makes it an ideal ingredient for a variety of recipes.
