Packhouse equipment that sends pests packing
Mr Apple (Longlands, Hawke’s Bay)
Mr Apple is one of the largest growers of apples in Hawke’s Bay. Their packhouse equipment at their Longlands facility was old and outdated. They were having downtime and reliability issues, which is the last problem a packhouse operation needs when fruit arrives. Most importantly, the packhouse equipment wasn’t removing the required volume of bugs which has a direct impact on sales.
