Netherlands: Green Tulip Award for PerfoTec
In addition PerfoTec has also won the Blue Tulip (Blauwe Tulp) in the category ‘Making More out of Less’ in consumer goods and services.
PerfoTec extends the shelf life of fresh fruit and vegetables. Winning this award, the company says, underlines the economic and social problem of food waste and acknowledges the strength of PerfoTec’s solution. This results in a new drive to reduce the waste of fruit and vegetables.
Fruit and vegetables need oxygen to stay fresh, but the amount of oxygen needed varies by varieties and changes through the seasons. PerfoTec supplies equipment to packers of fruit and vegetables that measures the exact quantity of oxygen needed and then its lasers provide the packaging film with the correct micro perforation required. This extends the shelf life considerably. A pilot with Marks & Spencer has shown that in this way the loss of pre-packed fruits and vegetables can be reduced by 50%.
Besides the considerable loss reduction, the packaging solutions from PerfoTec have got a number of other important advantages. By maintaining the quality of fresh produce, sales increase and the retailer further strengthens its positive fresh image. Additionally, distribution costs decrease due to the lower supply frequency that is needed. These benefits are all in addition to the huge savings that are made by extending the shelf life in store and for consumers.
