  • FreshCloud™ Predictive Screening employs genomics science to inform growers about the health of their apples

    Philadelphia – September 18, 2018 – AgroFresh Solutions, Inc. (NASDAQ:AGFS), a global leader in produce freshness solutions, today released more details about FreshCloud™ Predictive Screening. One of the first three core offerings of AgroFresh’s recently launched predictive technology platform, FreshCloud Predictive Screening uses the latest science to predict the risk of disorder development.

    By analyzing the gene expression of apples at harvest, Predictive Screening predicts the risk of disorder development in particular varieties, arming growers with the ability to make more informed storage decisions.

    “The greatest value that FreshCloud Predictive Screening provides to growers is the increased confidence and peace of mind that come from a better understanding of the likelihood of disorder development,” said Nigel Gapper, Ph.D., genomics research and development manager at AgroFresh. “Growers understand the intricacies and uncertainties of their business better than anyone. With predictive data on the health of their apples, they are empowered to make smarter decisions about their treatment and storage solutions.”

    Built on sound expertise in the science of plant genomics, Predictive Screening determines whether a particular harvest is Low Risk, Moderate Risk or High Risk for the development of a specific disorder. This knowledge allows growers and packers to reduce losses in High Risk fruits through strategic treatment, close monitoring or in some cases, implementing shorter storage windows. It also provides added awareness and confidence that Low Risk fruit will meet the high quality they expect to deliver.

    The first FreshCloud Predictive Screening sales began this summer, with results expected soon. One thousand sampling kits were produced so that orchard customers can determine the risk of Soft Scald development on their Honeycrisp apples and to help ensure that growers meet consumer demand for Honeycrisp apples, one of the most popular apple varieties.

    “We take seriously our commitment to help our customers grow the highest quality produce and minimize the amount of fruits and vegetables that go to waste,” said AgroFresh CEO Jordi Ferre. “Predictive Screening, and the entire FreshCloud platform, is rooted in our scientific expertise and our understanding of the needs of growers, packers and retailers. With better data about the risk of disorder development, growers and packers can optimize the way they store their harvests, maximize crop value and reduce food waste.”

    AgroFresh plans to share more information about the other two core offerings of the FreshCloud platform, Storage Insights and Transit Insights, throughout this month.

  • Exclusive sensor technology provides peace of mind for growers and packers during produce storage.

    Philadelphia – September 21, 2018 – Produce growers and packers now have increased visibility to monitor produce in storage thanks to AgroFresh Solutions, Inc.’s (NASDAQ:AGFS) FreshCloud™ Storage Insights powered by AdvanStore™ technology.

    Gaining visibility to unique data and insight into storage rooms empowers customers to make more informed inventory and marketing decisions. FreshCloud™ Storage Insights is one of the first three core offerings of FreshCloud, AgroFresh’s groundbreaking predictive technology platform for growers, packers and retailers.

    FreshCloud Storage Insights offers growers and packers a unique look into the health of their storage rooms, enabling them to predict and address problems through smarter inventory management. Proprietary algorithms and sensor technology, coupled with advanced analytics, optimize produce storage by providing actionable data to inform go-to-market decisions. Building on the legacy of AgroFresh’s former AdvanStore offering, FreshCloud Storage Insights makes storage room data more actionable by providing access to data anytime, anywhere through a more sophisticated delivery interface.

    “FreshCloud Storage Insights utilizes proprietary sensor technology and analytics to provide visibility and data about the health of produce inside storage rooms, allowing our customers to make smarter, timelier decisions,” said Dan MacLean, Ph.D., global research and development leader at AgroFresh. “Fruit is often stored in a cold room for months with little insight until the opening. Storage Insights solves this long-standing problem for growers and packers by giving them unique insight into the storage room health and enables them to predict and fix problems.”

    FreshCloud Storage Insights customers can access storage room data on the FreshCloud platform. Data can be segmented by produce variety, company facilities and even specific storage rooms. Customers can also compare their own storage room data to regional and national averages to determine how well their storage rooms perform. Automated notifications alert Storage Insights customers of trigger points that may signal potential issues.

    “FreshCloud Storage Insights is the latest way we’re helping our customers overcome obstacles to delivering the highest quality produce to consumers,” said AgroFresh CEO Jordi Ferre. “FreshCloud Storage Insights equips growers and packers with timely information to make the best choices for their customers, their profits and the planet.”

    This announcement follows the information the company shared about FreshCloud Predictive Screening earlier this week. AgroFresh plans to share more information about FreshCloud Transit Insights in the coming weeks.
