Softripe is a German-Brazilian innovation and stands for a novel technology for the ripening of tropical fruits, which allows a significant improvement of the respective fruit quality compared to conventional processes. The patented Softripe technology significantly improves the fruit characteristics that are important for the consumer, e.g. taste (typical aromas), shelf life and the uniform degree of ripeness of the fruit. At the same time energy is saved as the ripening process is faster but also more controlled.
The Softripe-technology is protected by granted international patents and further application procedures are underway.
After 5 years of research and development, Softripe® Technology was successfully launched on the market in 2018 and is now considered a unique, patented technology in the field of fruit ripening. Decide on the future of fruit ripening yourself. Suitable for your company and tailored to your requirements, we are able to offer you the future-proof Softripe® ripening system.
The "Softripe® ripening technology" was among the 10 nominees for the Innovation Award at Fruit Logistica 2019 in Berlin. In the end, the company was able to celebrate a very successful second place. In addition to the unique quality of the bananas, facts such as the automation of the ripening process and energy savings convinced the trade visitors.
Each year, the British Refrigeration & Air Conditioning magazine (RAC) presents the Cooling Industry Awards in various themes. The globally renowned award recognizes companies that are particularly committed to environmentally friendly and innovative solutions in the refrigeration and air conditioning industry. The Softripe® ripening technology was nominated together with the refrigeration company JD Cooling and the customer Worldwide Fruit in the category "Environmental collaboration of the year"!
Both the customer and the judges of the RAC Cooling Industry Awards were and are enthusiastic about Softripe and thus we could win this award for us!
