RESEARCHING AND DEVELOPING NEW TECHNOLOGIES
In the ongoing search to develop new technologies to more efficiently use resources
throughout the entire chain of production, Garces Fruit has implemented a series
of innovations described below.
Robots and automatic palletizers are used with more than 50% of our production.
Telemetry during precooling
Tool that enables us to remotely and reliably monitor the fruit cooling process in order to control and operate precooling tunnels.
Automatic dosing of fungicides
System that automates dosing of products applied on processing lines in order to optimize and standardize the process.
To ensure product safety, we have a system that automatically applies sanitizer to water used in processing fruit based on online concentration measurements.
Intelligent warehousing system
Use of software at both plants to optimize processes and improve outcomes of control systems.
Cherry Vision at all plants
Calibration system, comprehensively designed and developed to evaluate internal and external quality in cherries.
In order to produce better and more efficiently, we are growing some crops in greenhouses, which allow production starting from year two.
We have prepared protocols for technical soil analysis with a variety of parameters to correct physical, chemical and organic conditions. The result is efficient, environmentally friendly soil.
At Garces Fruit, we make sure that each field and each tree are treated individually in order to prevent improper water use and over-fertilization while maximizing efficiency at each farm. We rely on precision agriculture to give us accurate measurements of our crop production.
These systems optimize harvesting, picking produce more gently and minimizing damage to each piece of fruit. The outcome of these systems is reflected in improvements in production efficiency.
Mobile hydrocooler in fields
Enables fruit to be cooled immediately after harvest.
Ongoing testing of new varieties.
Constant development of new packaging
Always aiming to maintain the quality of our fruit.
