During the first two days of Fruit Logistica, the most important fair for the global fruit and vegetable sector, visitors can see each of the nominated entries in a specially created exhibition space in Hall 20 and vote for their favourite.

Brokomol ¿Y si? the bouquet
Anecoop, Spain Hall 18, B-01
A new dip alternative for guacamole lovers. Adding broccoli to guacamole reduces the product’s carbon footprint by more than 50%, as growing broccoli uses less water. Brocomole is made from 97% fresh broccoli and avocado. It is a source of fiber, vitamin C and potassium.

Avisomo Growth station

LEDFan Greenhouse Toplight – 2022 design
Food Autonomy, Hungary Hall 3.1, A-50
LEDFan provides savings in lighting and heating costs through a highly efficient design that utilizes heat loss with controlled fans. The luminaire has a wireless control system with a network-based BMS positioning and light error detection.

Dutch vanilla in premium quality
Koppert Cress, Holland Hall 3.2, C-01
An exclusive selection of Dutch vanilla of the Planifolia variety, an orchid species that only forms pods after three years. This vanilla can be compared to a semi-dry muscat grape: it is not yet a raisin, but actually much more. In principle, it is grown in the same way as the black variety, but because it is harvested much later, the taste is different.

Roast asparagus
Märkische Höfe Beelitz, Germany Hall 20, A-23
Pieces of green and white asparagus pre-cooked in their own juice. This gives a more intense flavor and longer shelf life. Whether used as a main course or served as a side dish, stir-fried asparagus can be prepared to your liking in no time.

OR Apple juice is topped up
Oranfresh, Italy Hall 4.1, A-15
A self-service vending machine that delivers juice from fresh bottled apples, added to a solution of water and ascorbic acid (vitamin C) to prevent natural oxidation.

Packaging Automation, UK Hall 2.1, C-01
Using Packaging Automation’s new Syncro technologies, evolutionS optimizes every step required to seal a tray accurately, reliably and efficiently. It is considered to be the most technically advanced single track tray sealer with the highest speed currently known.

Rijk Zwaan, Holland Hall 1.2, D-13
Tatayoyo is the brand name for peppers with a distinct and strong taste. They are an intermediate size between block and snack peppers. Their special flavor originally comes from wild peppers. Ideal as a tasty snack.

IDEAL melons
Syngenta Seeds, Holland Hall 1.2, C-50
Syngenta’s IDEAL Melons concept, with its harvest indication function, is a patent-pending innovation that indicates when the melon is ready to harvest at each step: when the ideal time is to harvest the melon, to ship it, to shelf it and to eat it. The latest game-changer in Cantaloupes is now available.
