Fruit & Vegetables

As a result of globalisation, fruit and vegetables are available all year long, therefore companies are faced with the issue of complying with different regulations to ensure food safety.
Transparency and traceability are key aspects of food safety, as being fully aware of the supply chain helps companies in their efforts to communicate better with their customers and mitigate the risks associated with non-compliance with good agriculture practices and sustainability.

CONNECTED combines a supply chain traceability service with Peterson & Control Union’s experience and successful track record in fruit inspections, certifications, cold chain logistics, lab analysis and relevant quality processes to achieve our customers’ goals, providing product expertise and knowledge both at the harvest and post-harvest stages.
