CONTAMINANTS CONTROL ON FARM
There are constant controls on each process to avoid product contamination.
HARVESTERS WITH SHAKER BELT
In the early 2000’s, we became pioneers by using shaker belts on our existing harvesters to reduce contamination.
HYPER SPECTRAL ANALYSIS
It is a research project based on the use of hyper spectral analysis for a non-invasive measurement of the intrinsic quality of our products in terms of nutritive elements and shelf life.
In collaboration with Ray-Tech, we have designed an innovative harvester for baby leaf with an optical selector to detect contaminants directly in the field.
We are working on a project which involves the use of a drone, with a multi-spectral detector, to check the cultivation’s sanitary state and any anomalies.
FLORIDA BABY LEAF OPERATIONS
We have formed a joint venture with Taylor Farms to develop farms for baby leaf US east coast production in a protected environment.
It is the first and largest baby leaf greenhouse plantation in in the USA.
In cooperation with Philips Lighting (NL), we have carried out a research plan to study innovative solutions regarding hydroponic cultivations in protected environments with the help of LED lights.
