Around 160 million tons of fruits and vegetables are harvested and distributed throughout Europe every year. More than 40% do not end up on a plate. They are wasted in the logistics process after harvest, or are of an inferior quality on reaching the consumer.
Dry mist is generated through an innovative technology of ultrasonic humidification/sanitation. It provides a cool, humid, and bacteria-free climate and with that has the ability to significantly reduce waste in the distribution chain by extending the shelf life and hygienic properties of fruit and vegetables. The Fresh Demo project will evaluate the benefits of this technology, together with a natural acidifier to preserve and enhance the quality and freshness of fruit and vegetables along the entire post-harvest supply chain.
This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 634699
