Zeeuwse Innovation prize Emergo 2018
The Zeeuwse Innovation Prize Emergo is an initiative of the Province of Zeeland, Dockwize, HZ University of Applied Sciences and the Chamber of Commerce. Omroep Zeeland is the media partner. The prize is awarded to an entrepreneur from Zeeland with the most striking innovation. The aim of the prize is to stimulate innovation in Zeeland. The prize consists of eternal fame and a work of art by an artist from Zeeland. This year the winner was allowed to have a custom work of art made by Jan Willem Hament, known from Leuntje & Mientje.
The robot with which KV-Techniek has been nominated is a robot that places bags in boxes and then adds a fixed CO2 disk so that the packed fresh vegetables immediately freeze. As a result, the products heat up less quickly during transport and they have a longer shelf life and avoid unnecessary waste.
On Wednesday November 7th, 2018, the prize was awarded during the Contacta, a network fair in the southwest of the Netherlands. We thought it was very special to be nominated for the prize. During the Contacta we received the jury prize from the hands of Jo-Annes de Bat. Then we celebrated the victory with our employees at the booth.
