"We are pleased and thrilled to confirm PND's presence at the next editions of Fruit Logistica and Anuga Foodtec, the two most important events in our sector at a European scale," said Virginia Cascella, export manageress of the Italian company, known throughout most of the world for its cutting machines for the fresh fruit and vegetable sector.
Fruit Logistica is the leading world trade fair for the fresh fruit and vegetable and processing machinery business, scheduled to take place in Berlin this year from Tuesday 5 to Thursday 7 April 2022.
Meeting onsite again is the underlying theme of the the 2022 edition. This statement is supported by PND's manageress: "Despite the persistent uncertainties of the historical moment, we will attend the event with immense pleasure. We have worked on our online presence over the last two years, which have been years of growth for us, but face-to-face human relations remain absolutely essential".

"The company will be presenting a new product in Berlin: a pear peeler with some upgrades," explained Cascella. However, PND did not want to reveal any details, allowing visitors the chance to discover the novelties.
The pear peeler was the first machine commercialized by PND and it marked the beginning of a growing trend. Over the years, this peeler has become versatile and highly responsive to customers' expectations, complementing the processing of pears with that of apples, kiwis and peaches. It is the same machine, with the capacity for multiple peeling, de-stemming and cutting operations.

Anuga Foodtec in Cologne, on the other hand, is the most important international event in the food and beverage sector, which does not take place every year, but has over time recorded a high and unchanged popularity in all product segments. It will be held from 26 to 29 April 2022.

"We will be exhibiting the SS8 universal cutter for fruit and vegetables in Cologne. The machine allows you to cut into slices, segments and sticks, and boasts a new feature that also allows to obtain pineapple cubes. This is a smart, compact and efficient solution that is always highly appreciated by fresh-cut laboratories around the world."
All that we can do, is to wait to meet our customers, and future ones, at the two German fairs,” concluded Virginia Cascella.
