Felix Instruments showcases latest tech advancements at Fruit Attraction 2019
At Fruit Attraction 2019, the international trade show for the fruit and vegetable industry, Felix Instruments - Applied Food Science showcased its two latest tools, the near-infrared Avocado Quality Meter and Mango Quality Meter.
Additionally, growers, distributors and importers of fresh produce had the chance to see for the first time the upcoming, but not yet released, addition to Felix Instruments' product line – the Kiwi Quality Meter.
Leonard Felix, the founder of Felix Instruments, a subsidiary of CID Bio-Science, was in attendance to answer questions and conduct live demonstrations of all of Felix’s tools.
“We are extremely excited to be back at Fruit Attraction, demonstrating our latest advancements at this year’s show,” said Scott Trimble, Marketing Director for Felix Instruments.
“As a company, our mission is to provide the most cutting-edge tools to our partners in the agriculture industry. We believe that the right technologies in the hands of commercial agriculture can change the world, and we’re happy to be playing a part in that.”
Technology is ubiquitous, and NIR technology has arrived in agriculture. At this year's event, Felix Instruments expanded on the theme of “Where fresh produce & innovation meet”. Felix Instruments´ exhibition hall – Hall 10 – is designed around the theme of “Fresh and Technology” representing the symbiosis of fresh produce and technology.
Hall 10 provides the place where breeders, growers and distributors could meet with innovative technology companies, allowing them to exchange ideas and explore what challenges and problems the technology can bring to agriculture.
“There are a number of NIR devices out there”, Trimble adds. “One of the many elements that set ours apart is this – our devices are not negatively impacted by external light. Every other produce-specific NIR tool on the market is.
"This means that while they may work in the lab, they blow up in the field because ambient sunlight enters the tool's lens, disrupting the measurement. Thanks to some very clever engineering, ours are not affected by this. Afterall, if you can’t use the device in the field, what good is it?”
