Processing and packaging are the two important phases of operations in the food industry. The final phase is the packaging stage. A great

deal of automation strategies are constantly being utilized in every phase of processing and packaging.

The correct packaging enables processors to pack fresh and fresh-cut fruit and vegetables and extend their shelf life. The important parameters for this shelf life extension are temperature, moisture and a modified atmosphere oxygen, carbon dioxide and ethylene. If both temperature and packaging are optimal, ageing of fruit and vegetables can be slowed down significantly.
