Family Tree Farms UK is a family run business, established in 1996 and has grown into a multi-award-winning company supplying top class soft fruit to leading retailers across the UK.
Since inception in 1996 the business has gone from strength to strength and continues to grow but in order to meet these challenges and ensure future sustainable growth Family Tree Farms were looking to design a new packhouse which would give them the opportunity to bring the packing of the fruit in house. This would reduce long term costs, enable the company to control production and reduce waste.
With nearly 60 years’ experience in the soft fruit sector #TeamPA were keen to help find the best solution, taking into consideration the limited space in the pack house.
The Solution was a complete turnkey solution for the whole packing line, incorporating the MiWeigh system and the flagship Revolution heat sealer. It was clear that the award winning MiWeigh technology alongside the patented Revolution high speed automatic tray sealer would result in high efficiency and a reduction in giveaway.
This customer has seen a significant increase in efficiency and a substantial reduction in giveaway using the MiWeigh scale system. The key benefit is the direct communication link with the checkweigher when running average weight increasing yield. They have reduced the labour on the line and are achieving increased outputs using the combination of
equipment and PA’s experience.
