"For Kronen GmbH, April was dominated by the two trade fairs Fruit Logistica and Anuga Foodtec. A few weeks after the last fair, they are taking stock. "We are delighted to finally be back in personal contact with the industry after such a long break of events. It was clear that both exhibitions would attract even fewer visitors, but we are satisfied with our presentation and the contacts we were able to make," said the spokesman for the Kronen Board of Directors Stephan Zillgith. “The innovative salad processing line in the virtual showroom attracted particular interest, as did the Convenience Avocado Line, which we demonstrated for the first time at a trade show, and proven Kronen classics such as the GS 10-2 belt cutting machine.”

Press article: New washing process for fresh-cut lettuce being studied
Produce Processing online
"Since 2019, Gartenfrisch Jung GmbH, Kronen and the Leibniz Institute have been working on a new process to wash fresh-cut lettuce. During a project meeting at Kronen’s head office, a washing machine specially adapted for this decontamination process was tested. The next step is an extensive testing phase actually in a Gartenfrisch Jung production line. The initial point of the research project is to prevent the risk of microorganisms from contaminating packed cut lettuce. Commonly, cell sap released from fresh-cut lettuce combined with humidity — unavoidable in plastic packaging — provides a breeding ground for microorganisms."
