Compac, the leading provider of post-harvest solutions and services to the fresh produce industry, welcomed to its development facility Mr José Octavio Cardona León, Mayor of Manizales, capital of the Caldas department in Colombia.
TOMRA Food and Compac, the global leaders in sensor-based sorting technology and packhouse solutions, invite you to experience a world-class sensor lab at Asia Fruit Logistica 2018, taking place from 5-7 September in Hong Kong, China.
Since the 1980s, Compac has been on the forefront of fresh produce sorting and grading technology. Today, we have installed over 6,000 lanes worldwide and provide sorting solutions for many of the globe’s largest growers and packhouses.
Andrew McQueen's recent blog announcing the launch of Spectrim 2.1 briefly discussed our new Texture Grading Algorithm. And no matter what you call it - Texture, Puff and Crease, Creasing, Albedo or Kraakskil - the grading of creased fruit is important to orange packers.
There is no question that the fresh produce industry is undergoing a period of phenomenal change. It is providing growth opportunities for packers who partner with suppliers, that consistently launch high-performance products which are aligned to their short and long-term goals.
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 food 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.
