The TOMRA 5C premium sorter has won the machine category award in the prestigious annual Japan Food Journal Awards.
Mr. Eizo Oda, Chairman of the Japan Food Distribution Association, presented the prize yesterday afternoon to TOMRA Processed Food’s Regional Sales Director for the APAC region, Steven Van Geel, at the official awards ceremony at the Daiichi Hotel in Tokyo, where the guest of honor was Mr. Tetsuro Nomura, Japan’s Minister of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries.
Now in their 25th year, the Japan Food Journal Awards spotlight products that support the development of the food industry through innovation. Judges look for contributions to creating new food products, cost reductions, and improved manufacturing efficiency. The TOMRA 5C optical sorter won the Machine Award because it sets new industry standards in accuracy, efficiency, and ease of use by employing digital tools and AI technology.
