Diamond Runner up: Embrapa Food Technology (Brasilia, Brazil), development of innovative packaging for fruits

Embrapa Food Technology, the National Institute of Technology and Macromolecular Institute (IMA) of Federal University of Rio de Janeiro (UFRJ) developed packaging for fruits that makes the most of refrigeration to keep food fresh. The two-part container is rigid and is closable over a PET-type plastic where the fruits are packaged. It maintains fruit quality longer to significantly reduce post-harvest losses to below 5% and decreases energy use in the lower cold chain of the supply chain.
