The actual stage, the Postharvest Directory,

Back in 1998, when “Poscosecha/Postharvest” started a bilingual portal, the Spanish Postharvest Directory , www.poscosecha.com, and English, www.postharvest. biz, two set of fields, one in each language, were written and fed to the Internet pages. Once a year, the printed version -“Directorio Poscosecha”- was compiled and issued, highlighting the most important new or most accepted products of the participating companies. The “Directorio Poscosecha” had always had Spanish as the primary language, adding short explanations in English.

How was this book distributed? The printed version of “Directorio Poscosecha” had between 200 and 250 pages. It was intended that its weight not exceeded 500 g, in order to mail it paying low postage fees. This was, indeed, one of the forms of distribution. Free issues were sent to a number of recipients while others paid only the delivery costs. But those costs increased steadily, becoming prohibitive in time. During two years the “Directorio” was also available as a CD, achieving only a modest success. What was happening? Internet was increasing its reach and becoming accessible to all readers. Even to those who have had problems to gain access to it previously. Many African friends had problems connecting to Internet, for instance, and were glad to meet us in trade shows and take with them their issue of the “Directory”. But sometime later, visiting a test field like Fruit Logistica, we could confirm in two years in a row, that the visitors were not taking with them the books. Or at least, not with the enthusiasm shown in previous years. After those two years we decided – with many doubts, though – to start publishing also a pdf downloadable version of the “Directorio” in our Internet site. The first year of this decision was a transition, with both a printed and a PDF version. That was the last time that a printed version saw the light. At the time it was not known how the readers could react to the new channel.



a full English language edition

Presently, with the “Directorio” available exclusively on-line and pdf for the last three years, the number of visits to the document tell us about its acceptance. In November 2013, four months after the publication of that year’s issue, around 20.000 visits were registered. That is ten times the number of printed books on its largest edition. That success encouraged us to start the project you have before your eyes right now: The “Directorio Poscosecha” written completely in English, to allow our friends from non-Spanish-speaking countries to access the whole information of all enterprises, in the same way it is also available on the site. From now onwards, the Spanish site www.poscosecha.com has its Spanish “Directorio” and the English site has also a Directory written completely in that last language. We hope to have found a solution that covers your needs and expectations.

INTERSEMILLAS Calle nr. 2, esquina con Calle nr. 5 Polígono Industrial de Loriguilla 46393 LORIGUILLA (Valencia) - SPAIN Ph.: +34-961 640 101 Fax: +34-961 668 483 intersemillas@intersemillas.es www.intersemillas.com The company INTERSEMILLAS, SA was constituted on March 7, 1983 in order to produce and market seeds; at this time started a process of selection of plant material for obtaining varieties with an interest for the vegetable market, and at the same time to develop a sales network for the introduction of such products. The ornamental and environmental division began in 1992 with the creation of the Department of Forest and Ornamental Seeds and three years later, 1995, started the Department of Seeds for Lawns and Revegetation. The latter two activities are fundamentally related to advice and supply of horticultural seeds for forest trees and ornamental nurseries, landscaping , sports and environmental restoration through erosion control. The latest addition to INTERSEMILLAS offer is seed for organic farming. In a market characterized by great change, high costs and high concentration of technological competitiveness , INTERSEMILLAS has managed to become one of the first seed companies in Spain, supplying also other countries. INTERSEMILLAS is a young and dynamic company, but with roots in the agricultural world. The goal is one, to make more effective and profitable the business of its clients, by offering highly resistant seed to pests and


A watermelon according to its name

CARAMELO, by INTERSEMILLAS, is a seedless watermelon, small , with broad dark stripes, like crimson sweet, giving it a great look. The internal color is also very nice. Caramelo, “candy”, is very high in sugars, which, all together, makes it a watermelon highly appreciated by the consumer, catering and restaurants. Served as slices, offers a striking appearance in the dish for its color contrast between the skin and flesh. If included in salads, the deep red pulp pieces stand out among the other fruits, valuing the whole. The size is small, weighing between 3.7 and 4.5 kg, easy to carry by the consumer. The shape is round, slightly elongated. Uniformity in shapes and sizes that characterizes Caramelo generates attractive lots at the point of sale. The skin thin, 8 mm, but sturdy, enables a large percentage of the pulp being usable. The skin resistance also makes it resistant to splitting. Caramelo F1 (S – 10228) is a triploid variety that stands out for its precocity, which allows collecting it at the same time that black watermelons.

A very attractive watermerlon, both out and inside

DIVINA, by INTERSEMILLAS, is a seedless watermelon with a large striped bands and white streaks on a dark background, resulting in a very attractive aspect. When cut, it shows a superb internal coloration, homogeneously throughout the court in a red that is as intense in the heart as against the bark. The bark is thin and strong. The small thickness of the bark, together with the uniformity of the internal coloration, allows a high utilization of the pulp. At the same time, the bark is very tough, allowing a very good behavior during the transport, without cracked parts . The weight is between 3.7 to 4.4 kg , which makes it easy to handle by the consumer at the point of sale, and easy placing in the fridge . Uniformity is one of the main characteristics of this variety, resulting in homogeneous lots. Divina F1 (S- 10207) is a triploid which causes a plant with medium vigor and color, with similar yields as varieties with large fruits.

We ensure that fresh fruit and vegetables reach the consumer without losses, with all their flavour, with maximum life, at the best moment for consumption. Our ADVANCED POST-HARVEST SOLUTIONS are blazing the trail for post-harvest technologies and treatments: CITROSOL A S UE wax for citrus products, with its low drying temperature, which achieves considerable energy savings and a remarkable reduction in greenhouse gas emissions, the ZERO SPILL SYSTEM®, which maintains initial treatment effectiveness without generating fungicide suspension residues, the Fortisol Ca and Fortisol Ca PLUS plant strengtheners, hydrosoluble salts of Ca, P and Na that stimulate the natural defences of the product, helping to control post-harvest decay and rind breakdown, and the combination of X3 NEBULIZER + GLOCUAT PC or QUACIDE PQ60 EC, a simple but innovative technology for disinfecting packinghouses. We are currently working on the control of post-harvest diseases in other fruits and vegetables, including peppers and tomatoes. We will soon be marketing an integrated system for washing peppers that ensures the food safety of the product, controls decay in all varieties of peppers and achieves a considerable reduction in water consumption. Citrosol has treated over 200 million tons of fruit (citrus, pears, apples, bananas, etc.), and this has enabled us to offer the best solutions to thousands of customers all over the world and to design new developments in more effective and more efficient postharvest systems.

Productos Citrosol X3 NEBULIZER + GLOCUAT PC

Effective disinfecting has never been so easy and cheap as nowadays

The winning combination that CITROSOL has developed: the X3 Nebulizer mobile unit together with Glocuat PC, a “ready to use” biocidal disinfectant. The nebulizer mist behaves like a gas that can reach any area or surface in the packinghouse, and on contact with walls or objects it becomes a liquid with practically total fungicidal/bactericidal effectiveness. The mobile unit allows the introduction of sequential C+D (cleaning+disinfection) programs in all rooms and areas in the packinghouse, with very low structural costs.

greenhouse gases (CO2, CO, etc. ) during this process is, as a consequence, also lower.


A new system for on-line application of fungicides which reduces treatment variability by keeping the concentration of fungicide constant


CITROSOL has developed a complete line of citrus covering waxes that is also effective at much lower drying temperatures This low drying temperature wax allows energy savings of 60-70% compared to traditional waxes. The amount of energy needed for drying the wax is therefore reduced. Emission of


This fungicide application system is very superior to other systems presently used in pre-grading – both pools and on-line systems. It reduces treatment variability and keeps constant fungicide concentration. Besides, consumption of those agrochemicals is sharply reduced. It includes our technology ZERO SPILLAGE SYSTEM®.

AGROCHEMICALS (Phytosanitary products) - PHD 2014


Phytofortifiers against postharvest decay and rind breakdown


Citrosol has developed FORTISOL Ca Plus water-soluble salts of Ca, K and P that produce greater stimulation of the fruit’s natural defences against active pathogens in postharvest treatment of citrus. Fortisol Ca has proven effectiveness in reduction and control of postharvest discolouration and in decay control. Fortisol Ca PLUS has an enhanced efficiency in decay control. Both phytofortifiers are effective in controlling postharvest decay and rind breakdown. CITROSOL ZERO SPILLAGE SYSTEMŽ

Is the first industrial system that has a maximal efficiency and homogenity in controlling rot and decay It keeps the fungicide mixture in the drencher and deposit unchanged, allowing its continuous recycling and obtaining a constant efficiency in the treatment.

Increased homogeneity in waxing and application of fungicides through artificial vision

Artificial Vision System that allows control of the flow of wax in relation to the flow of fruit that the applicator has to wax at any given moment. It measures the fruit flow after the grading operation, avoiding the application of too much or too little wax. It is the ideal tool for the most modern lines, where much grading takes place before waxing.

At the same time, the need to treat surplus mixes is avoided, because their composition remains unchanged. The mixes can be recycled and used again during the whole citrus harvesting season.

Special coating for fruit

AGRICOAT NATURESEAL LTD. 7B Northfield Farm - Great Shefford RG17 7BY BERKSHIRE UNITED KINGDOM Ph.: +44-(0)1488-648988 Fax: +44-(0)1488-648890 Simon.Matthews@natureseal.com www.agricoat.co.uk Agricoat Natureseal Ltd. manufactures special coatings for the postharvest protection of fruits and vegetables during packaging, storage, and trading. Semperfresh is a coating based on sucrose esters. Natureseal is used to slow down darkening and other ageing symptoms in apples, pears, carrots, celery and other ready to eat fresh cut products. Natureseal FS has been added to this range of products as a result of the demand of processors after a chlorine free product for washing the produce before cutting. FS is a blend of different acids that could be used to substitute traditional chlorine wash while processing fruit and vegetables. Its sulfite-free (GRAS) ingredients continue to be recognized for meeting the industry’s highest standards for quality, performance, consistency and functionality. Agricoat has made a long term commitment to superior research and development, quality control and good manufacturing practices.

Semperfresh is a coating developed by AgriCoat for the postharvest protection of fruit like pears, melons, pineapples or cherries. Its components are approved by the European Union and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) of the United States for the superficial treatment of produce. In order to obtain the best results it should be applied after hydrocooling. It can be applied at the same as fungicides, for instance.


Natural coatings for shelf-life extension

Natureseal is easy to apply and does not contaminate the fruit with smell or flavor. Using Natureseal, the fruit keeps its taste and natural color, texture and firmness. Packaging under modified atmosphere is not necessary. Shelf life is extended up to two weeks beyond normal, lengthening available time for product distribution, improving production and processing efficiency.

It is a system for control and regulation of cold storage and degreening rooms. Electronic sensors that measure humidity, temperature and infrared CO2 sensors are used for automatic management of fruit storage and degreening/ripening rooms. Chambers equipped with CITROGAS-CONTROL achieve a more precise control of temperature and relative humidity. Besides, measurement and control of CO2 levels allows for optimal ventilation, reducing the operating time of the humidity, warming and refrigeration systems and thus achieving important energy savings.

We ensure that fresh fruit and vegetables reach the consumer without losses, with all their flavour, with maximum life, at the best moment for consumption.

In those degreening/ripening processes, the equipment also regulates automatically ethylene levels, adjusting its consumption and keeping the right concentration to make the process develop correctly. This leads to better degreening or ripening and longer shelf life, without decreases in the organoleptic traits, weight or skin appearance of the fruit. This system permits connection to a PC on which all the relevant parameters of its functioning are recorded.

Isolcell Italy has conceived and developed several high quality storage monitoring and control systems that control and generate the desired atmosphere. The most important ones are N2 separators, O2 and CO2 scrubbers and ethylene converters, O2 and CO2 analyzers and the related automation systems. DCA, an exclusive Isolcell product

Scald control without postharvest chemical treatments

DCA allows to control scald, avoiding at the same time the use of chemical antioxidants - like DPA (diphenylamine ) and ethoxyquin – in the postharvest treatments. The system, patented by the Government of Canada and developed by Dr. Angelo Zanella, is distributed throughout Europe exclusively by ISOLCELL ITALIA SpA. This method replaces the static conservation parameters with dynamic ones resulting from the response given by the fruit itself. It uses a special sensor that measures the fluorescence emitted by apples, thereby identifying the minimum threshold of oxygen tolerated by the fruit. The AC conservation takes place at a value slightly above that threshold, dynamically adjusted throughout the storage period. By lowering the level of oxygen in the storage chambers, internal metabolic activity is drastically reduced, which results in a better maintenance of internal and external characteristics defining product quality. Using this technology, ISOLCELL meets the growing consumer´s demand requiring produce free of chemical residues. Another advantage of DCA is the drastic reduction of internal browning in varieties like Granny, Braeburn, Pink Lady and Fuji. And also the exclusion of drencher as post-harvest treatment to apply antioxidants, significantly reduces the percentage of rotten apples in storage. Due to this experience and to the close cooperation between research institutes, technology companies and customers, ISOLCELL has demonstrated once again to be at the forefront of fruit storage technology. This new storage technology is used with commercial purposes since 2003 and its use is extending rapidly overseas. The graph shows the development of DCA cameras in the last 7 years in Italy (blue), other countries (gray) and the sum of both values(green)..

In the industry sector of the storage of apples and pears, a new technology called “DCA Conservation” (Dynamic Controlled Atmosphere) is being increasingly used. More in Postharvest

.Smart chain electronic sizer

Precision for a large number of kinds of fruit

The smart chain electronic grader assesses weight, quality, color and dimension in species of various shapes and is adapted also to work with very delicate fruit. The fuit acceses the intelligent electronic sizer on a sloped surface, being pushed by rubber fingers to the entry of weighing scales and going on further through an ejecting mechanism. The ejecting mechanism pushes the fruit to the side, resting on a soft nylon brush, avoiding in that way hits and blows. The conveying system allows the processing of any kind of fruit and vegetables, getting for them the desired weight. Computers and different kinds of electronic sensors are used. They are coordinated by a special software. The system is able to measure weight, quality, color, size (length, width, area). A camera and electronic platelet obtain up to 50 pictures/second.

The electronic selector of defects, shape, color, diameter and weight by IngenierĂ­a Prodol works based on specifications in order to obtain optimal results in the measurements to perform. The quality and color system is based in the use of CCD color cameras that allow the detection of major basic colors, secondary colors and four different defects, being able to tell apart up to three different spots for each defect. The fruit is turned around under the camera to show its whole surface and that examination can be seen in the monitor. The grading system by diameter rests on the use of black and white CCD cameras. It has specific algorithms for calculating diameter and has the ability to measure diameter, length or both. In the grading system by weight, a digitalizing process eliminates signals generated by vibration of the machine. Each conveyor cart is dynamically weighted to establish the tare, which is subtracted from the measured value in the conveyor cart loaded. All variations in tare are automatically compensated.

UNITEC Innovative sorting and processing lines for over 35 kinds of fruit and vegetables. We design and manufacture innovative technologies which automate the entire processing cycle, from bins dumping to defects selection, sorting and packing through to traceability. Some of our technologies able to increase processing stage efficiency within packing houses:

Apples technologies

Cherries and Cherry Tomatoes technologies The development of new systems which are ultra-gentle in apples handling has allowed us to create high-capacity systems for the various different apple varieties solving the problem of their delicate nature. APPLE_VISION is the vision system for nondestructive detection of the apples external quality.

CHERRY_VISION and CHERRY TOMATOES_ VISION are the vision system that guarantee non-destructive detection of the internal and external quality of cherries and cherry tomatoes. These are technologies versatile and customizable for any packing house on the basis of end user requirements and reduce the work of identifying fruit defects manually, with marked savings in processing costs. Thanks to these technologies, packers can improve their quality selection regime and increase market profitability thanks to accurate quality selection never reached before.


SUPERSOFT_EXIT is the ultra-gentle system that guarantees zero damages to apples during the unloading from sorter. Stone Fruits technologies (apricots, avocados, flat peaches, nectarines, peaches, plums)


APRICOT_VISION and PLUM_VISION are the vision system which allow the non-destructive detection of internal and external quality of apricots and plums. These technologies are able to select the fruit according to quality parameters not detectable by the human eye such as excessive softness of the flesh and dents or damage to the pulp of the fruit. The systems also detect the presence of external defects of peel and form.

Lines can be equipped with automatic quality selection systems (PEACH_VISION) designed to greatly enhance the end-product quality being presented to the market. Kiwis technologies

The high precision used to detect parameters such as weight, size, colour and defects on kiwis skin allow to obtain excellent product homogeneity, achieved by using the highest quality criteria that add value to the product. Tomatoes technologies

UNI_FILL PUNNET, automatic filler for apricots and other stone fruits.

Lines for peaches offer high-precision processing, guaranteeing extremely accurate grading with the possibility of using either optical or weight-based sorting systems.

Lines for tomatoes are extremely flexible and versatile, indeed they can also be used to process 6/7 other kinds of fruit and vegetables. They can be equipped with automatic quality selection (ULTRAVISION) that greatly enhances the end-product quality being presented to the market.

Infia Since 1947 Infia srl has focused on creating innovative packaging that represent a winning solution to the new requirements of packaging , offering products that provide the maximum value and protection to fruits and vegetables. Today, Infia is a company with over 400 employees settled into two production plants in Bertinoro (Italy) and Puçol (Spain). With 162,000 m2 productive area, Infia has its headquarters in Italy. There is where their business strategies are defined. And with its two trade branches in Spain and UK, and with the strength of its commercial network based on distributors, Infia guarantees the presence of its products worldwide and places it in the leading position as packaging manufacturer in Europe and as the second one worldwide. Infia has always stood by continuous effort in innovation. The company was the first to believe in the future of PET as packaging material, the first to propose new models that have revolutionized the packaging of fruit and the first to present the traceability system on their packaging. Today Infia is the main promoter of RPET. This is the reason why its range of articles is one of the most diversified and comprehensive in the supermarket sector. A technological simple concept in Inia´s punnets and clamshells – the side ventilation in the packaging units – leads to a 25 % faster precooling time of the produce, which results in less energy use and less carbon footprint, in more productivity for precooling rooms and longer shelf life of the produce. The evacuation of humidity allows a better visibility of the produce inside while shopping in the supermarket and also diminishes the incidence of fungi and rots. Ethylene is faster eliminated, contributing also to a longer shelf life of the contents of the package.

The Pac Life technology, modified atmosphere packaging of PSS Packages Spa for the manufacturing of active packaging materials, is a last generation polymeric blend that improves permeability, and includes special additives in its molecular structure. Ethylene absorbers among them. The final result is an optimal balance between oxygen and carbon dioxide, eliminating humidity inside the bag, avoiding condensation and rotting. The Pac Life technology is available for the main kinds of fruit (apples, kiwis, cherries, peaches, nectarines, avocados, asparagus and other vegetables and flowers).

The technology is a new development patented by the company that starts working since the moment of the sealing of the Pac Life bags.
