F W Mansfields have purchased a wonderful new (to us and them) camera system that takes 1-3 high quality pictures of each bin of fruit, and automatically assigns them to bin on the grading system. This can be combined with a grade-out report to provide more clarity and transparency about the grading process to third party growers. There are often tensions that arise from the grading process, between grower's perceptions and grading reality, and this camera system looks to assuage those concerns with cold, hard picture evidence. This provides useful feedback for Mansfields customers that can only strengthen relationships going forward.
If you grade fruit for third party growers and are interested in this system, get in touch with us today to receive an information pack about the process and possibilities.
