The fresh produce industry is facing challenges that only technology can help resolve. In an age where we’re all technology adopters, we barely bat an eyelid at the incredible technological achievements humans are making globally. But when we stop to take a look, we’re making huge advancements in all areas and the fresh produce industry is certainly no exception.
Fresh produce contributes a healthy 30-60 percent of total grocery spending. It boosts foot traffic, drives strong brand equity and is a key differentiator for retailers competing in both physical and digital marketplaces.
Your business thrives on the fast turnaround of complex and rapidly changing orders for a huge variety of customers, produce types and packaging requirements.
One of the core functions of a packhouse is the accurate and precise weighing of produce for subsequent packing and distribution. Modern packhouses commonly utilize electronic sorting equipment to increase throughput and reduce costs. Within your packhouse, having an accurate, precise set of “weighing scales” is critical to ensure maximum yield through minimized giveaway, and to protect your brand by guaranteeing that every bag meets your customer's target weight requirements.
