Interview with Harm van Nispen from Van Gorp Greenfood

Since when is Van Gorp using the Laser en Respiration System from PerfoTec?
We have been using the laser for about 8 years now.

For which products and which packaging are you using the PerfoTec laser?
The laser is installed on a VVVS machine, on which we produce pillow bags. We use the laser for packaging with mixed lettuce combinations.

FlexFresh Liners address peak in production pointed peppers

The production of pointed peppers is not constant. Peaks in production are followed by troughs, as a result of with the supply and with it the price is fluctuating. A grower of pointed peppers has managed to address this successfully through usage of the FlexFresh Liners.

Top seal packaging of the future?

Top seal packaging (a tray with foil) is very popular in fresh food. For meat, fish, ready to eat meals and salads. It’s only in fruits and vegetables that top seal is lagging. And that’s strange if you look at the advantages it has to offer.

They are very pleased with the results and the support they have received from PerfoTec as reflected by the endorsement letter, which the CEO of the company has send.

Blue berries from Chili to the UK with new bulk bags

Last month a customer from PerfoTec has conducted a trial with blue berries, transporting them all the way from Chili to the UK by sea. For the trial the new Flexfresh Liners from PerfoTec were used and the results were very good.

Are you ready to deliver P+10?

Retailers and consumers expect a longer shelf life. For berries that’s P+10. But are you already able to deliver this? Not only technically, but also in a way that makes economic sense? The micro-perforations from PerfoTec, which are based on respiration rates, are able to deliver P+4 versus the usual macro-perforated packaging. That’s why PerfoTec and berries are a winning combination for retailers, growers and consumers.
