EMAP: how do I pack cut vegetables and fruit?

Training about packing cut vegetables and fruit, from the point of view from the product, the packing material and the packing machine.

Frigo desserts

In this training we extensively talk about packing cut vegetables and fruit, from the point of view of the product (e.g. respiration speed), the packing material (e.g. respirating foils), the packing machine (e.g. flush techniques). Among others you may expect to get answers to the following questions:

WHAT

  • What is the effect of the different processing steps on the initial quality of cut vegetables and fruit?
  • Which techniques are available to guarantee the optimal initial microbiological quality before the packing?
  • How can the respiration speed of cut vegetables and fruit be calculated?
  • How can the selection of the packing configuration be adapted to the respiration speed of cut vegetables and fruit?
  • Which packing materials and packing techniques are suitable for packing cut vegetables and fruit?

Besides theoretical insights, which are linked to the Industrial practice as much as possible, the participants are offered exercises that are solved during the training (e.g. calculation of oxygen permeability of foils based on the respiration speed of the product).
