Brick and mortar retail is always on the lookout for new ways to make shopping a richer experience. A good four years ago, ingenious engineers at Dutch Food Technology came up with the idea of developing a machine that peels and slices pineapples. The Piñabar was born. In just 20 seconds, the young Dutch company’s self-service machine processes a whole fresh pineapple with no help and in front of the customer’s eyes, before dropping it cleanly and hygienically into a bucket.

Ready to eat in an instant

Maybe you've already encountered a Piñabar at your favourite supermarket? Machines are customizable in appearance and are now located in many supermarkets such as EDEKA in Germany, the COOP in the Netherlands and Carrefour in Spain. And for over a year now, the Piñabar has been conquering the USA as well.
