2021 is the International Year of Fruits and Vegetables. For us, this is an occasion to highlight our manifold research activities in this area ...

The United Nations General Assembly has declared 2021 the International Year of Fruit and Vegetables. The decision is based on a proposal by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations FAO. 

ATB conducts research along the entire value chain of fruit and vegetables: from growing to storage and packaging.

Infos on our research can be found eg on the following pages:


Online event by the German Ministry for Food and Agriculture BMEL (in German): Thematic afternoons in the International Year of Fruits and Vegetables.
On Oct 28, 5:00 to 6 pm: "Fruit and vegetables: this is how future looks like - inspiring technical ideas"

ATB-scientist Dr. Martin Geyer and a team of experts will discuss questions from the chat such as: 
What kind of technology is used in the cultivation and harvesting of fruit and vegetables? Technology and product quality - do they get along? What do pioneering cultivation systems for tiny growing spaces look like? Why do fruits and vegetables have to be packaged? Which packaging is avoidable, which other options are there for protection or quality assurance? How can we store fruit and vegetables optimally so that the quality is maintained for a long time?
