AgroFresh's Amber Foster Discusses Solutions Across Variety of Supply Chain Management
PHILADELPHIA, PA - A supply chain without tools to grease its wheels is a supply chain left in dire straits. Enter AgroFresh, a provider delivering customized AgTech solutions for the produce industry to keep produce fresh and reduce food waste, to name only but a few. In order to find out more about this company, I spoke to Amber Foster, NAR Marketing Manager and Corporate Brand Manager.
“In agriculture and supply chain management, experience matters,” Amber began. “For more than 40 years, AgroFresh has provided revolutionary and proven solutions to the produce industry that have maximized produce freshness, reduced food loss, and conserved resources throughout the supply chain. AgroFresh has become an industry leader and trusted partner during the past 40 years, offering a comprehensive portfolio, one-to-one problem-solving guidance and diagnostics, a high-touch service model that best meets customer needs and created the highest level of client confidence and trust in the industry. This is a differentiating benefit for AgroFresh, especially in comparison to those marketing generic produce freshness solutions.”
Amber went on to note that one category that this AgTech innovator offers experience in is stonefruit, which is especially pertinent as we make our way into summer stonefruit promotions. Each of AgroFresh’s solutions, including SmartFresh™ and FreshCloud™, are designed to minimize food loss and get fresh and delicious produce into the hands of customers worldwide. As Amber pointed out to me, though, these solutions can be applied to a number of crops across various categories.
“We grow confidence for our customers and the planet—no matter the challenge. Developed in close collaboration with customers—and between our diverse teams of service professionals, technologists, marketers, scientists, and post-harvest physiologists—Smarter Freshness solutions extend and build on our unique 1-MCP knowledge, insights, and experience to serve a growing range of produce industry markets and applications, including apples, avocados, citrus, berries, and more,” she explained.
Backed by 40 years of post-harvest experience across a broad range of crops, AgroFresh also introduced its SmartFresh Quality System over 20 years ago. SmartFresh puts ripening “on hold” to boost its customers' storage and transit potential.
AgroFresh is powered by a comprehensive portfolio that includes plant-based coatings, equipment, and proprietary solutions that help improve the freshness supply chain from harvest to retailer. Further, as a global AgTech innovator, AgroFresh can support our partners’ global expansion and offer the post-harvest expertise and in-depth technical and R&D support that they need to attain their business objectives.
