Felix Instruments will host a free workshop for avocado industry leaders in Malaga, Spain on Thursday, December 16, highlighting how the avocado counter sets high benchmarks for fruit quality.
The Felix Instruments Avocado Quality Meter allows an almost instantaneous and non-destructive assessment of avocado dry matter. Used by Mission Avocado, Camposol and Del Monte, the device facilitates dry matter measurement, increases test consistency and reduces measurement time by 95%.
The Felix Instruments Avocado Quality Meter allows an almost instantaneous and non-destructive assessment of avocado dry matter.
The free workshop is presented by application scientist Eric Munoz in the presence of local Felix Instruments distributors. They will reveal how Felix customers use the device, show the Avocado Meter in action with a live demonstration, and allow attendees to try the device for themselves.
Conference attendees will learn how the highly adaptable quality indicator uses near infrared analysis to assess dry matter, a critical indicator of overall fruit quality and ripeness. Measuring dry matter traditionally took hours, but the Avocado Meter reduces that to an eight to 10 second sweep at the push of a button.
Participants will be able to try the meter for themselves.
The workshop, the only one of its kind to be held in 2021, will also highlight technological and precision improvements on the device and provide a networking opportunity between colleagues in the avocado industry.
The instrument also offers the option of using Fruit Maps, a free interactive harvest map application co-created by Felix Instruments and Central Queensland University.
