Fresh produce processing refers to the the conversion of one or more fresh produce inventory (for example fruit, vegetable, seafood, herbs, hop, flowers) into a value added product. The value added product may be simply a dried herb, or may be a more complex product such as a mixture of processed juices. Fruit and vegetable production and consumption in Asia and the Pacific region have shown a marked upward trend over the past several years. Rising consumer demand in the region has come with greater awareness of food safety issues and increased need for convenience and quality.
The fresh-cut produce sector has responded to these demands, and is currently at different stages of development across the region. Assuring the safety and quality of fresh-cut produce necessitates the selection of high quality horticultural produce for processing, and the implementation of good practice during processing operations in order to maintain produce quality and assure safety of the final product. A computerized management system is highly recommended for fresh produce processing to ensure accurate traceability and maximum food safety in the food manufacturing and processing space.

Agri is committed to FFB traceability. Traceability is the first step towards building a fully sustainable supply chain. Our mills are supplied by our own estates, plasma scheme smallholders and third party suppliers. Identifying supply from third party suppliers in Indonesia is challenging because of the complexity of the supply chain, comprising layers of dealers that operate between estate owners / farmers and the mills.
Collaboration lies at the heart of UNIVEG's Intelligent Traceability Strategy,” says Ben Horsbrugh, Director of Quality Management. As a company we believe that working in strategic partnerships with selected IT companies - and even with our competitors - produces the best and most cost-effective software solutions. We see the FRUIT LOGISTICA as an ideal opportunity to showcase both the food safety and traceability tools we are using and the strength of partnerships that lie behind them.
In some instances we have cold store inspections, to ensure that there were no progressive defects. Fruits will periodically have a quality inspector present with the loading of containers, to ensure that the produce is handled according to industry protocol. Our quality department will monitor the progress of the vessels and will request a quality report from the overseas (or local) client within 48 hours after arrival. The quality reports are then saved on our website, so each supplier is able to monitor his own arrival quality. They are notified by sms when a new report is available. Quality reports are also e-mailed or faxed to the suppliers on request.
It's also no secret that fewer students are enrolling in university level greenhouse grower programs, and that horticulture degree tracks have disappeared from many universities across the globe. With fewer candidates available who have formal horticultural training, especially in hydroponics — and some of those who ditch the ornamental and produce side of the industry for cannabis production — it can be a tough and slow process to fill such key positions. You may find yourself overpaying underqualified employees just to keep the wheels turning.
