Cool–Research on the move mobile research facilities

With the ‘Cool – Research on the move’ concept, research institutes and companies can now carry out independent research into the quality of local perishables wherever they are in the world. The result: less food waste, greater export opportunities and more jobs. This unique concept is a partnership between Wageningen Food & Biobased Research and Fotein. It combines knowledge and techniques in the field of post-harvest technology into a single mobile research facility.

On the outside, it looks like a normal reefer container. But inside is an ultramodern research facility with climate chambers, measuring devices and control equipment. This enables a fast, reliable evaluation of the starting quality of fruit and vegetables, ensures that different storage conditions are arranged for different products and monitors their quality decay. Products of a visibly higher quality or with a longer shelf life keep customers happy and secure better selling prices.
