Increased consumption of fruit and vegetables is important in order to combat obesity and prevent heart decease, cancer and diabetes. One of the most widespread recommendations is to consume 5 servings of fruits and vegetables per person per day, particularly amongst children and young people. However, consumption of fruits is decreasing daily.

The consortium is working in a packaging solution to make the consumption of fruits easier. Fresh peeled fruit ready-to-eat and easily portable would be a solution for those who find in preparing and cutting this product an inconvenient, or those who have difficulties to peel it.

The proposed solution of EASYFRUIT is to combine the minimal processing treatments and develop an active packaging for fresh-cut fruit.

The research leading to these results has received funding from the European Union's Seventh Framework Programme managed by REA-Research Executive Agency under grant agreement nº 315565
