These changes were announced at a press conference at the Fruit Logistica trade show in Berlin, Germany, by Tove Andersen, President and Chief Executive Officer of TOMRA, and Michel Picandet, Executive Vice President and Head of TOMRA Food.
Affirming TOMRA Food's commitment to work even closer with growers, packers, and food processors to optimize food production, bit by bit, the TOMRA Food brand name will now be accompanied for the first time by a tagline: 'Every Resource Counts'.
To align TOMRA Food's operations, which have grown over the years with mergers and acquisitions, two businesses acquired by TOMRA in 2018, Compac and BBC Technologies, now adopt the TOMRA Food brand name. These will form a newly-created business area, TOMRA Fresh Food, while TOMRA Food's other operations become part of the TOMRA Processed Food business area.
Tove Andersen, President and Chief Executive Officer of TOMRA:
"The way we tell our brand story isn't only about communicating TOMRA Food's current position and future ambitions. It is also part of TOMRA's broader strategy to make a positive difference to the world we live in."
"We can achieve this by working closely with customers and establishing a common way of doing things to leverage strengths across the Group. The revised branding is also part of a strategy to attract new talent to the TOMRA group and TOMRA Food, to significantly increase our workforce by 2026."
Tove Andersen, President and Chief Executive Officer of TOMRA
Michel Picandet, Executive Vice President and Head of TOMRA Food:
"We are now presenting our brand in a way which recognizes how our lines of business and our customers are stronger together."
"Between us, we have the expertise to transform the food industry and lead the resource revolution, contributing to the sustainability agenda and helping to drive change for a better world. Keeping this perspective for the long term helps people better understand the actions needed in the short term."
"Our revised brand story also reflects how, by reformulating strategy in the last couple of years, TOMRA Food has set out on a more clearly defined path."
"This strategy is based on three pillars: on growth, to grow the business faster and better; on excellence, to be best-in-class in everything we do; and on talent, to take care of our people and support their development."
"Updating our brand story will also help attract new talent to TOMRA, which is important because everything we achieve for our business and for our customers is driven by people. In fact, our people are our resource revolutionaries!"

Making Every Resource Count
The TOMRA Food brand name will now be accompanied for the first time by a tagline: 'Every Resource Counts'
The company strengthens its leadership position not only by designing and manufacturing the most effective sorting and grading solutions but also by transforming advanced technology and complex information into valuable intelligence.
These capabilities matter more now than ever before because the planet's growing population has an increasing need for safe, high-quality, and sustainable food. Sharing collective roots of knowledge in the food industry with farmers and entrepreneurs, TOMRA Food truly understands that every resource counts.
