Starting on December 15, 2010, NSure’s revolutionary new method for determining the quality of fresh produce of South Africa, will be available to South African fruit producers and shippers. In co-operation with Chris Ferrandi Consulting (Pty) Ltd, a branch office has been established in Somerset West under the name NSure South Africa.
To enable the same quick result times as NSure offers in other parts of the world, NSure South Africa entered into a partnership with the Centre for Proteomic and Genomic Research (CPGR). This Cape Town based laboratory offers cutting edge molecular technology services to customers from both industry and science. CPGR will perform the analyses according to NSure procedures.
Chris Ferrandi Consulting (Pty) Ltd. is a well known company in the South African fruit industry, offering consultancy and cold chain control services to growers and shippers for more than 15 years, the company has built a strong reputation as a partner in quality control.
NSure South Africa will first introduce NSure‘s most successful product range, the series of tests to control maturation, harvest time and storage potential of apples and pears. These tests offer customers a better grip on batch quality. Whether implemented as harvest time prediction, for storage planning or for sales planning, NSure’s offerings will increase operational efficiency and result in a better and more uniform product quality for end-users overseas. The present co-operation guarantees an optimal service level for NSure products in one of the largest fruit producing area’s in the world.
