Process Optimization and Inspection Needs of the Fruit and Vegetable Industry

Protect Brand Reputation and Eliminate Waste

The modern consumer’s desire for healthy, fresh produce is driving fruit and vegetable consumption. Hence the need for producers in this sector to ensure fresh produce of the highest quality. But the challenges they face are many. 

Just like processed fruit and vegetables, fresh fruit and vegetables run the risk of being contaminated or damaged by the weather. Add to that the complex production, handling, and shipping processes of a supply chain and the many factors that can diminish the quality of the  produce. These aspects put the quality of the final product at risk. 

To ensure homogeneous and high-quality fruits and vegetables, there is an increased need for fresh produce producers to have systems for internal and external quality as well as traceability systems in their production line.

Food Quality Requirements for the Fruit and Vegetable Industry

Quality Characteristics of Fruits and Vegetables

Processing produces correctly and ensuring high-quality fruit and vegetable is just one of the many challenges producers face every day. Fruit and vegetable quality is determined based on multiple parameters, such as quality defects, color, weight, symmetry, and product integrity. These can be apples with cuts in the stalk and stem cavities, oranges with, e.g., brown spots caused by Alternaria, avocados with insect damage, or onions with signs of rot. 

By assessing factors such as the internal and external quality of fresh produce in the best possible way, ensuring traceability and the correct weight of products, can consumers’ expectations be met. But these are just some of the many factors essential to meet consumers’ expectations and large-scale retail trade.
