New call-to-action

Peeling yield and uptime improvements

Since the dawn of JIT, manufacturing companies have strived for greater productivity, higher quality, and reduced costs. Some think that they have set the bar relatively high, or perhaps they are content with the height they have established themselves, but standards are continuing to rise, and complacency will not help them reach their potential.
There is a quote by Seth Godin that says: "You can raise the bar or wait for others to raise it, but it's getting raised regardless."

Blizzard: the cost-effective and efficient sorter for frozen vegetable processors

In a booming agribusiness market, TOMRA Food has presented several solutions for the various segments of the food sector in Brazil. The Blizzard machine dedicated to frozen fruit and vegetable processors is the latest addition to its offering.

Vegetable processors can improve efficiencies by unlocking big data

For vegetable processors, the saying that “knowledge is power” is especially true now that they can use the new TOMRA Insight web-based data platform. By gathering detailed data from sorting machines, this subscription-based service gives processors more knowledge about what’s happening on their lines and the power to make better-informed decisions. This is transforming sorting from an operational process into a strategic management tool.

VIRTO GROUP once again chooses TOMRA and renews the equipment at its main plant with eleven Nimbus BSI+ sorters

VIRTO GROUP, the largest frozen vegetable company in Spain and one of the most important in Europe, has again put its trust in TOMRA. The company has updated its main plant in Azagra (Navarra) with eleven Nimbus BSI+ sorters. This frozen vegetable mixing, packaging, storage, and distribution center is one of the most technologically advanced in the industry.

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. Extraneous vegetable material (EVM) and foreign extraneous vegetable material (FEVM) are often unseeable by the human eye and not always detectable by conventional sorting machines. But now there is a groundbreaking sorting technology which makes the previously impossible possible.

Eliminating the risks of processing organic vegetables

Processing organic vegetables, once a niche specialty, is now big business. However, while crops grown without pesticides are regarded by consumers as exceptionally natural and safe, they bring processing lines additional complications and risks.    

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.
