Cotes dehumidifying from Denmark
In the process of implementing Applied Postharvest Technologies, it became clear that it is all a matter of managing Humidity. In the beginning of the process after harvest, you need humidification, at the end station in the big central warehouse type cold room complexes, you need management of humidity as you otherwise create your own rain in the cold room resulting in severe condensation. That is detrimental to the product. In becoming a Pro-Partner for Cotes from Denmark, a world-renowned leader in its field, it is a recognition from our field- and industry expertise.

A name in industrial refrigerating engineering
The Nijssen family started in the refrigerating engineering business in 1948. Subsequently, Nijssen Koeling made its name as a developer of leading-edge industrial refrigeration systems. Over the years they gradually added wet cooling systems, ripening chambers and plant cultivation chambers to their product line-up. From then on they simply became known as Nijssen.

Fresh-Key from Shanghai, China
Fresh-Key has been concentrating on the supply of thermometers and GPS equipment for international fresh fruit trade ever since the company was founded.
Their aim is to provide customers with comprehensive data on temperature, humidity and location of fruit and vegetables during import and export. It can be used for flowers as well.
Fresh-Key equipment helps to lower the cost of distribution and reduces economic losses due to product waste during transport.
They developed and produced three types of equipment used in fruit-, vegetable- and flower import and export: USB thermometers (PDF + CSV), real-time thermometers, and blue-tooth thermometers. The real-time thermometers allow customers to track temperatures, humidity and locations of products in transit through the online platform which helps customers monitor sensitive products in domestic and international transport.
UTE has been part of an extensive 15 countries worldwide wide testing program of this monitoring technology.
Through rigorous testing units tested in South Africa under real RSA conditions, we gave continuous feedback from South Africa to China and UTE could check the durability and accuracy of the units and is proud to have contributed to this test program.
