For IQF vegetable processors, BSI+ sorting technology accomplishes ‘mission impossible’

Fulfilling the two biggest responsibilities of IQF vegetable processing, food safety and product quality, can sometimes seem like mission impossible. Though processors are tasked with preventing foreign materials and imperfect produce from reaching the end of the line, these difficult-to-see enemies can also be difficult to stop.

But now there is a groundbreaking sorting technology which makes the previously impossible possible.

Futureproofing is leading vegetable farmers indoors

Imagine that vegetable farmers could suddenly multiply their yields per acre. Or that the vegetable-growing season continued with ideal climatic conditions forever.
