CUSTOMER TESTIMONIAL KENTAUR AG, SWITZERLAND

The Swiss company Kentaur AG, a specialist in cereals processing, has been using a TOMRA 3C optical sorting system to sort puffed grain for a year now. This has resulted in a significant optimization of output: the TOMRA sorter ensures high sorting performance and accuracy and helps Kentaur meet the strictest requirements for food
safety and quality. The investment has paid off - since the new system was introduced, there have been very few issues with the puffed grain end products.

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. Or that local soil quality and climate didn't matter. Or that there was no need to use pesticides because rodents and insects were nowhere to be seen. Or that large volumes of vegetables could be grown and processed on the edge of urban areas, slashing the time and expense of transporting produce to retail outlets. Growers and processors would be busy all year round in a predictably manageable way.

TOMRA FOOD PUBLISHES NEW E-BOOK FOR VEGETABLE PROCESSORS

The free-to-download publication identifies how vegetable processors will be affected by changing market demands

Good news for vegetable processors: consumer tastes and incomes are shifting

Food demand is changing in ways that will bring vegetable processors more business. Retail sales of vegetables, boosted recently by home-cooking during COVID-19 lockdowns, are expected to keep on rising for reasons unrelated to the pandemic. One sales-driver is stronger demand from established markets, where food preferences and diets are shifting. Another sales-driver is increasing demand from emerging markets, where millions more people are starting to earn and consume more.
