Oscar awards for innovation awarded at MacFrut

On the final day of the Macfrut event, the international exhibition dedicated to the fruit and vegetable supply chain, five Oscar Macfrut Awards for innovation were given.

Ishida received the first category award for its Rv Series, the latest development of Ishida’s multi-head weigher; Carton Pack won a prize in the Packaging category for its Cpfresh® technology, which enables product respiration to be self-controlled, thus retaining quality unaltered until the time of consumption; OrtoRomi won the third category prize for Topolina, a new lunch-time bowl; whereas Polymer Logistics won the Oscar Logistica prize for Rattan Active Lock Rpc, a trolley that can be easily converted from a pallet into a reinforced trolley, and vice versa.



The general prize, based on visitors’ votes, was given to the Alma Mater Studiorum of Bologna, which presented the Sweet series cherries, with features including: sweetness, large size, attractive appearance, firm flesh and fragrance.
All the prizes were awarded by Paolo Lucchi, Mayor of Cesena, except for the second category prize, awarded by Domenico Scarpellini, President of Cesena Fiera, and the third category prize, awarded by Alberto Zambianchi, President of the Chamber of Commerce of Forlì-Cesena.

The products in this competition were judged by a panel of experts and authorities in the agri-food sector. The initiative aims to encourage companies to achieve process and product innovation.
