Attractiveness, freshness, taste, anti-waste and better storage of fruits and vegetables on the fresh department
Day and night, ARECO nebulisation preserves the freshness, taste and organoleptic qualities of your fruits and vegetables thanks to stable and controlled hygrometry (90% RH).
ARECO nebulisation allows to enhance your fruits and vegetables departments while reducing food waste. Thanks to our nebulisation systems, your products retain their quality, they are better and longer preserved, which reduces the waste. The resources required to make them to reach the sales area are thus reduced.
Vegetables to nebulise
Leafy vegetables (leaf carrots, salads, radish, spinach…), zucchini, chicory, bananas, citrus, pineapples, strawberries
The humidification we provide on fruits and vegetables has many benefits:
Nebulisation preserves the freshness and nutritional qualities of vegetables
The ARFITEC Group has studied the impact of nebulisation on leafy vegetables and more particularly on salads. The study revealed that nebulisation maintains the water content and avoids the loss of mass of salads.
Based on the samples studied by ARFITEC, CTIFL carried out tests to better quantify the impact of nebulisation on the organoleptic and nutritional qualities of the salad. The results show a stability of the organoleptic properties of the salad (carotenoids, organic acids and polyphenols).
Nebulisation thus maintains the products in a state similar to that of the harvest.
With nebulisation, the products retain their freshness and their organoleptic and nutritional qualities from the time they are harvested until they reach the shelf.
Nebulisation adapts to your products layout
The fruits and vegetables department changes with the seasons. To meet this need, ARECO offers a modular solution so that the nebulisation can be adapted to your products layout.
Fruit and vegetable nebulisation diffusers
A 180°C fog pattern that can be adjusted in height.
The flared mast has integrated shutters to modulate the nebulisation according to your department.
An ideal diffuser for a wall cabinet or refrigerated display case.
Eco-responsible diffuser, it diffuses the fog up to 360°. Its design is fully customizable.
The speed of the fog can be adjusted according to the needs of the products on the display. This mast is also a source of dramatisation.
ARECO nebulisation tested and verified
"The results of this study show that the nebulised salad samples have a water content and concentrations of compounds of nutritional interest (carotenoids, polyphenols) similar to those initially observed after 48 hours of conservation at 20°C, and that this process makes it possible to maintain the product in a state of "freshness" close to that of the original product.
Christophe AUBERT, Laboratory Manager
"A lettuce can lose more than 3% of its initial weight in 7 hours, a bunch of radishes more than 2.5% and a broccoli more than 1.5%. At these levels, physiological deterioration (wilting) is already visible on lettuce and radish tops. When these products are subjected to appropriate humidification, they lose half their weight in the case of lettuce, three times less in the case of radishes and almost four times less in the case of broccoli.
« Benefits of installing a Nebulizer System: feeling refreshed, system that allows better conservation of salads, a process that results in more flattering offerings. »
« The implementation of the system gives the impression of a concern for product quality, ahead of its competitors, close to consumers. »
« The artichokes have a long shelf life of five days with ARECO nebulization, broccoli has one day, iceberg lettuce three days, the purple artichoke 7 days, 2 days fennel, asparagus 3 days. »
« Since installing, the ARECO nebulization system, the qualitative picture of the display increased significantly. »
« Marketing was always possible three days after the shelving for nebulized salads and 4 days for asparagus. These shelf lives are three times longer than in a refrigerated displays. »
A POS material is installed on the shelf to inform about the benefits of nebulisation for the fruits and vegetables and to specify that the water fog diffused over the products is filtered, and without the addition of chemicals.
ARECO solutions for fruits and vegetables
ARECO proposes a new diffuser : the MDT360
The MDT360 makes the fruit and vegetable department more attractive with a dynamic nebulisation system.
Indeed, it is a motorised mast that diffuses the nebulisation at 360° on the fruit and vegetable shelves.
The humidity level is adapted by adjusting the speed and density of the fog that is distributed.
