Consumers have paid more attention to food safety since the outbreak of Covid-19. This also means that standards in fruit and vegetable processing industries have been raised. Washing the product is an important step in processing fresh-cut fruit and vegetables. Efficient and convenient washing equipment does not just improve the production efficiency, but also guarantees a supply of top-quality, food-safe fresh-cut fruit and vegetables to the Chinese market.
A growing number of Chinese fruit and vegetable suppliers are currently replacing outdated processing equipment to make sure they provide Chinese consumers with the highest-quality, food-safe fruit and vegetables.
“Lettuce and similar vegetables usually require 2-3 minutes of washing, but traditional equipment rarely meets these requirements. We have improved this process and extended the period when the vegetables are washed and sterilized. The long and narrow washing tunnel extends the time that the vegetables spend in the water and improves the efficiency of the cleaning process. Filters further separate the vegetables from small stones, soil, grit, etc.”
According to Valencia, “another point of interest is the automatic control of water in the washing line. Monitoring equipment controls the PH-level of the water and adds or removes water to maintain the right levels. The equipment also adds sterilizer and citric acid when necessary. Vegetables pass through this stage and are then again washed thoroughly to further reduce the number of micro-organisms and guarantee the highest level of food safety.”
Lueon Technologies was established in 2003. The company is a leading manufacturer of food processing equipment for the Chinese fresh-cut salad and vegetable industry. Lueon Technologies has provided Chinese industries with research and development, design, and manufacturing of equipment and comprehensive solutions for fresh-cut fruit and vegetable needs.

A growing number of overseas clients has become aware of the great price-quality ratio that Lueon Technologies offers, and the company is more than happy to set its eyes on the international market. In this way Lueon Technologies is able to help even more clients produce top-quality, fresh-cut fruits and vegetables.
