More than 40% of the beautiful crops that grow on our fields are wasted and do not end up on a plate. This is not acceptable in a world with a growing population and so many mouths to feed. We have to stop the ridiculous waste flow of fresh food. We want to cut this waste flow in half.
For that reason Contronics developed Dry Misting technology
From the European Commission we received the Horizon Impact Award.
Contronics has proven that their Dry Misting technology makes a significant contribution to reducing food waste.
The solution works simply with regular tap water, we provide a variety of connections to ensure the system get its fresh water supply and your produce remains healthy and nutritious.
Water quality is crucial. For this reason a specialized filter has been developed so that your produce remains fresh anywhere in the world. Bacteria, viruses, minerals and salts are filtered out of the water for optimal hygiene and also the durability of the equipment.
Inspired by the morning mist hanging over a crop field, we sought to replicate this natural phenomenon. Our systems are equipped with ultrasonic technology to make the finest mist from the purest filtered water. The humidifiers can be applied at every stage of the supply chain, from postharvest through to storage, and transport to the supermarket shelf. Dry Misting enables a significant reduction in food waste.
As the mist floats out of the humidifier through our special diffusers, your produce is surrounded by a thin layer of mist. As this mist evaporates, the humidity rises and the temperature drops naturally. The produce loses no more moisture and stays fresh longer without getting wet! This is what makes the Dry Misting so special, the produce keeps all its important nutrients, and has a significantly increased shelf life.
