At PMA Fresh Summit in Orlando, 19 – 21 October, TOMRA and Compac will demonstrate how digital technologies are key to overcoming the ubiquitous food industry challenges of production and yield maximization.
TOMRA Food and Compac, the global leaders in sensor-based sorting technology and packhouse solutions, invite you to experience a world-class sensor lab at Asia Fruit Logistica 2018, taking place from 5-7 September in Hong Kong, China.
The challenges of a growing global population is well documented and by 2050 the world’s population will reach 9.1 billion, 34 percent higher than today. That’s a lot more people to feed, which is a challenge and a great opportunity for our industry. As the demand for food increases, especially healthy and fresh, it’s a great time to be working in the horticulture industry! The challenge above requires us to increase production by more than 30 percent in around 30 harvests and when you think about it that way, there is not a lot of time. It’s great to see Hort Connections this year is aiming even higher than that and it's inspiring to know that many believe it’s possible. We certainly do at Compac and TOMRA Food and we are constantly evolving our solutions to help growers, packers and food processors achieve greater efficiency.
El mes pasado, nuestro equipo asistió a Global Cherry Summit en Chile para apoyar a la industria local y pasar tiempo con nuestros valorados clientes. No solo fue un placer para el equipo conocer a los adorables chilenos, ver el hermoso país y pasar el tiempo en un lugar tan maravilloso, sino que también aprendieron más sobre el mercado actual y sus desafíos.
Last month, our team attended Global Cherry Summit in Chile to support the local industry and spend time with our valued customers. Not only was it a pleasure for the team to meet with the lovely Chilean people, see the beautiful country and spend time in such a wonderful place, they learnt more about the current market and its challenges.
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.
The Produce Marketing Association (PMA) Fresh Summit is the premier fresh produce trade show in North America. The scale of the event is enormous with last month’s event attracting almost 20,000 people and more than 1000 exhibitors. TOMRA and Compac were positioned side-by-side to show how sorting solutions can protect and enhance our customers’ brands.
Hort Innovation has recently announced the launch of Taste Australia, an initiative set to be the largest trade push in Australian horticulture’s history. By 2025 it aims to grow Australian produce exports by contributing an investment of more than $10.5 million into horticultural activities across the next year.
Asia Fruit Logistica is approaching fast, and the tradeshow promises to be the biggest yet. A global audience will gather for the two day event, with a large contingent from China, Australia and New Zealand. This increase reflects the importance of Asia for many exporters as it’s demand for safe quality produce continues to rise.
Compac and TOMRA will be exhibiting at Hort Connections 2017 on 15 - 17 May, at the Adelaide Convention Centre. This show is exciting as it’s the first of two great things - it’s the first time PMA and AUSVEG have united to deliver a joint industry conference and trade show, and it’s also the first time Compac and Tomra have shared a booth in Australia.
