Online-News "Fructidor.com", 6 March 2018
Report on KRONEN project and lecture at Anuga FoodTec 2018:
"The production of ready-to-eat, packaged fresh products such as fresh-cut salads has increased in the last couple of years. As an example: one important main element in fruit salads are apples. They are washed and cubed – while remaining unpeeled. Thus, removing the adherent micro-organisms from the skin accurately is a basic requirement.
This aspect is addressed by a project named DEKONWA, which KRONEN GmbH is working on together with its partner, the ATB Leibniz Institute for Agricultural Engineering and Bioeconomy. Goal of the project is to not just wash apples, but to also hygienize them in a gentle way and without using any additives or chemicals."
