Quality of imported and domestic fruits and vegetables in the Danish retail trade with special reference to mechanical damages



Quality of imported and domestic fruits and vegetables in the Danish retail trade with special reference to mechanical damages



International conference on agricultural mechanization, Zaragoza, Spain, 27-30 March 1990 Workshop on impact damage of fruits and vegetables Volume 2: 9-16



Results are reported of investigations carried out over several years on the quality of fresh produce on the Danish market. Apples (many cultivars) were sampled between May and Jan. (1985 to 1989). Over 95% of apple samples did not comply with the EEC standard for bruises. More than 20% of peaches and nectarines sampled in July 1989 had pressure or impact damages, and more than 20% of strawberries sampled in Apr., June and July (1987, 1988 and 1989) had pressure damages.
