New produce printing method uses food colouring

A method for printing fruit and vegetables with food colouring has been developed by Kellermeister Manns GmbH. 



The trick is to print round objects of varying shape and diameter without bruising. The company uses a process with special food dyes that they claim do not affect the fruit's taste or shelf life. With the patent-pending method developed by the exhibitor, even delicate tomatoes can be printed without any marks or bruising. 

The process allows for customer logos for marketing purposes, growers' logos to identify the brand, or batch numbers for traceability. Apples, pears, oranges, bananas, tomatoes, cucumbers, sweet peppers and many other fruit and vegetable varieties can be visually enhanced in this way.
