With over 70,000 attendees, Fruit Logistica in Berlin is the largest trade show for the fresh produce industry. The show is a great opportunity for the global supply chain to gather for three days and discuss the future of our industry. TOMRA, Compac and partners will demonstrate the following sorting solutions to protect and enhance produce brands at Hall 5.1 B-15.

  • Spectrim – The award winning Spectrim platform is the most powerful inspection system to be offered to the fresh produce industry. We will have the platform at our booth and have software demonstrations.
  • Inspectra 2 – Inspectra 2 is officially launching at Fruit Logistica 2018. Inspectra 2 uses a spectrometer to measure the internal properties of fresh produce, ensuring a quality eating experience for consumers.
  • TOMRA 5A- The TOMRA 5A potato sorting machine brings more than 98% removal rate of foreign objects, quality inspection and peel quality control to customers. Running the highest capacities in the industry, this sorter significantly increases the level of food safety and yield.
  • TOMRA 5B- TOMRA 5B is a highly efficient, intuitive sorting machine that has been designed to improve yields and product quality, with minimal product waste and maximum uptime. These benefits are made possible by three integral features, namely the delivery of optimum performance, improved ease of use and enhanced hygienic design.
  • Cherry Total View – Total View is the latest upgrade to Compac’s cherry grading solution. A combination of learnings from Compac’s Spectrim platform and newly developed End View camera, allowing cherry packers to see the whole cherry at production speeds. The solution was installed and proved very successful during the recent New Zealand cherry season.

As well as physical demonstrations of the above products, we will haveVR TOMRA experience.png interactive touchscreens to illustrate the products in a packhouse environment, packing a variety of fruit and vegetables, and a virtual reality (VR) experience to give attendees a unique experience of the TOMRA machines.
