TOMRA Sorting Food is set to showcase its Blizzard free-fall sorting machine for the individually quick frozen (IQF) vegetable and fruit processing market at the 2015 PMA Fresh Summit in Atlanta, Georgia.
Located at booth 467, TOMRA experts will be present at the Georgia World Congress Center from 23-25 October to discuss the machine on display with processors and packers from across the industry.
The Blizzard free-fall sorter is a cost-effective solution, which provides continuous inspection and removes unwanted discolorations, foreign material and misshapen produce to deliver an optimum yield of high quality and safe products for customers.
The sorting machine can be easily implemented into existing processing lines and can be installed after IQF tunnels or prior to packing. It delivers stable detection and handles mono and mixed colour produce.
Americas and Oceania sales manager Karel Strubbe said: "The Blizzard involves pulsed LED technology, already implemented in other TOMRA sorters and adapted to the specific needs of the IQF industry.
"Our proven track record in frozen fruit and vegetable sorting solutions, and improvements in technology, enabled us to deliver this breakthrough for the food sorting market.
"TOMRA’s food sorting machines are not only the most efficient way to sort products, they are also a smart investment.
"Customers are reporting significant increases in yield, through put and productivity, lower utility and maintenance costs, improved in line analysis and more.
"We understand that sorting food isn’t a one-size-fits-all process and that is why exhibiting at events such as Fresh Summit is so important.
"We can speak directly to customers and find out how we can tailor our approach and service to suit them."
At the PMA Fresh Summit, visitors will be given the opportunity to speak with TOMRA experts and discuss its complete portfolio of solutions for both the fresh pack market and processors. The company offers farm-to-fork solutions for vegetables, fruit and potato products.
