Save Foods’ eco crop protection treatment was in the spotlight at the Fruit Logistica Trade Fair, demonstrating an appealing solution to the challenge of reducing pesticide use and minimizing waste

Miami, FL, April 18, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Save Foods (NASDAQ: SVFD) (FSE:80W) (“Save Foods” or the “Company”), an agri-food tech company specializing in eco crop protection that helps reduce food waste and ensure food safety, is pleased to announce that its participation at this year’s Fruit Logistica Trade Fair led to strong interest from packers and distributors serving the European market. The Fruit Logistica in Berlin is a leading trade fair for the global market of fresh fruit and vegetables. Save Foods used the opportunity to show off its eco crop protection treatment, which has proven successful in fighting food waste across the food supply chain.

Dr. Neta Matis, COO of the Company’s Israeli Subsidiary, commented: “This year’s Fruit Logistica event highlighted the fact that pesticide residues are becoming one of the main challenges to agricultural trade. We believe that our growing reputation among our current customers and within the industry motivated numerous packers to seek us out at this year’s trade fair, and we are now seeing requests for new trials from a multitude of these new contacts.”

European countries are among the strictest in terms of pesticide residues on fruits and vegetables. Depending on the final destination and end client, the residue limits are often lower than the legal limits. Most European supermarkets require products to comply with a residue level of 50% or less of the legal limit.

During Fruit Logistica, Save Foods received twenty-five concrete requests from prospective customers to initiate trials of the Company’s eco crop protection treatment in the coming weeks, and five of such requests have already materialized into new trials that will commence in the coming weeks.

“We have a track record of converting 100 percent of our trials into paying customers,” continued Dr. Matis. “The interest from attendees at Fruit Logistica, which included key decision makers from every area of the industry, is extremely encouraging and sets the stage for multiple opportunities to accelerate growth as we continue to execute on our vision of reducing food waste and ensuring food safety. On behalf of our entire team, I would like to express our gratitude to all of the visitors that came by our stand to learn more about our game-changing solutions.”
