King said the systems should help the Navy encourage sailors to place more fresh fruits and vegetables on their plate.

King said the Navy handles large volumes of produce. Last year, it served 92 million meals through its $424 million foodservice budget.

He said the Navy purchases fresh products from markets all over the world.
