Seed cultivation and breeding companies
The fruit and vegetable sector is constantly innovating. Not only from a technical point of view, but also when it comes to new species. Kiwa AQS can help seed cultivation and breeding companies to determine the quality of new varieties before they come onto the market. Extensive quality assessments – internal and external quality, firmness, brix, etc. – and shelf life tests show how newcomers score compared to the standard varieties.
Growers, growers associations and trading companies that ship their products directly from growers can use Kiwa AQS once or periodically to monitor the quality of fresh produce. As an independent third party, Kiwa AQS can also rule on conflicts between growers and buyers.Show
Fruit and vegetable companies can turn to Kiwa AQS for the quality assessment of products during a fixed period under specific conditions. This shelf life check provides insight into how the quality of products develops over time. This can also be done in a benchmark in which comparable products of different origin, variety, suppliers and in different packaging are compared with each other.Show
Kiwa AQS specializes in carrying out quality inspections of fresh fruit and vegetables, both processed (cut) and unprocessed. The quality inspections take place at various types of clients throughout the fresh produce chain and are carried out by our independent and experienced quality controllers.Show
