Objectives and Approach

The objective of project FRUIT is to develop an integrated product-life tracking system for citrus fruit products. The system will track fruit from its selection at a packing station, through its subsequent transportation across national boundaries, to its consumer market destination.

The project aims to develop:

The system will be demonstrated in citrus fruit packing stations in Greece and Spain, within refrigerated transport units, and at receipt and display at the point of sale in the UK or other member states.

Exploitation

The main benefit of the system will be to provide vendors and consumers with information on the quality and life expectancy of the product.
