Combined power drives Tomra Sorting Food

Optical food sorting system manufacturer Tomra Sorting Food has reached an important milestone in its history.

From 2016 onwards, the Best Sorting and Odenberg legacy brands will be retired and the company will progress as a single, unified brand under Tomra Sorting Food. The latter will form part of Tomra Sorting Solutions, a sensor-based sorting pioneer in the recycling, mining and other industries. The company has more than 110 years’ experience of delivering high-performance sorting, peeling and analytical solutions for nuts and seeds, dried fruits, potato products, fruits, vegetables, meat, and more.

Commenting on the brand unification, head of Tomra Sorting Food, Ashley Hunter, says, ‘This final and complete adoption of the Tomra brand simultaneously marks the successful end of a journey and the start of an exciting new era.

Best Sorting and Odenberg have been around for more than 60 years in total and the companies’ combined power, knowledge and expertise will continue to live under the umbrella of the Tomra brand.

‘Being part of Tomra Sorting Solutions gives our customers access to technological synergies that exist across its food, recycling, mining and specialty products business streams. This also allows us to respond to customer and food industry challenges quickly, offer the best value products, and work with customers to develop innovative solutions meeting their needs.’
