Fresh Produce

Fruit and vegetables

Fruit and vegetables and other fresh produce can be hard to weigh due to their fragile nature and short shelf-life. They require delicate handling to prevent bruising and special packing procedures to minimise waste and control costs. To see how our multihead weighers helped one client to improve the productivity of their potato line, see the case study section on the right hand side of this page.


multihead weighers for fruit, vegetables and saladSalads are much more difficult to weigh as the salad leaves are extremely delicate. Like fruit and vegetables, they also have a short shelf-life. They are often packed bag in bag with additional components such as sachets of salad dressing, which can make the process more complicated.
