   Wageningen Food & Biobased Research Opens A Unique Research Facility For Quality Control Of Fresh Produce
by Wageningen University & Research
Posted: Tuesday, October 10, 2017 at 9:09AM EDT

Wageningen Food & Biobased Research will open its new research facility for quality control in the fruit, vegetable and flower sector on October 6, 2017. The facility brings together knowledge and expertise in post-harvest technology and agro-food robotics. Worldwide, the need for quality conservation is growing: companies can keep their products fresher and reduce food waste using insights obtained at Wageningen.

"Companies benefit from a sustainable chain in which quality during storage, transportation and at point-of-sale is optimally controlled. Food losses are reduced and the availability and volume of quality food for the global population increases. Companies also enjoy a stronger international market position”, says Raoul Bino, General Director of the Agrotechnology & Food Sciences Group at Wageningen University & Research.

Multidisciplinary approach

To achieve global sustainable growth in fresh chains a multidisciplinary approach is needed. In this renewed, modern research facility, expertise in the physiology, quality and shelf life of fresh products is combined with robotics and vision technologies. Research outcomes are translated, by Wageningen experts and companies in the chain, into methods that quickly, objectively and accurately measure product quality.
