Save Foods, Inc., an agri-food tech company specializing in eco crop protection that helps to reduce food waste and ensure food safety while reducing the use of pesticides, today announced growing interest among European retailers and distributors in Save Foods innovative eco-treatment.
Dror Eigerman, CEO of Galilee Export and member of Save Foods’ Advisory Board said “After implementing Save Food's innovative eco-treatment across several produce lines - including avocados, bell peppers, and mangos - several of our EU-based clients informed me that they have noticed higher quality produce with extended freshness. I believe as more retailers and distributors learn of Save Foods’ innovative treatment and its many potential benefits, we will face growing demand to use the treatments.”
Mr. Eigerman went on saying: “Based on my discussions with the EU-based clients, Galilee Export looks forward to increasing our sales in the EU. Save Foods’ innovative eco-treatment provides a great combination of no added cost, no workflow disruption and, most importantly meets strict EU regulations regarding pesticides.”
As regulators and retailers across Europe move toward a "zero-tolerance" policy regarding pesticide residue limits, a growing number of European retailers and distributors are pursuing pilots with Save Foods to fight waste of fresh produce all along the food supply chain.
“Europe accounts for more than €60 billion (approximately $60 billion), or 44%, of the global trade value of fresh fruit and vegetables, and includes five of the 10 largest importing countries in the world. The feedback that we have received from distributors and retailers is extremely encouraging,” commented Dan Sztybel, CEO of Save Foods Ltd. “As large food suppliers continue to recognize the potential for Save Food's game changing treatments, we expect to see strong demand in the near and mid-terms.”
