Unitec Group at PMA Fresh Summit 2018

Unitec Group will be present at the PMA Fresh Summit Trade Event, scheduled at Orlando on October 19th and 20th, 2018 for the ninth year in a row (Hall G – Booth 401) , taking with them all the innovation and excellence of their technologies, which are able to produce important evolutionary changes in the processing operations of the Fruit and Vegetable Packing Houses.

During the event, Unitec stand will exhibit Unical 200 Cherry with the Cherry Vision 3.0 system and Uni 9.0 Pear with the Pears Sort 3 system, for the electronic quality selection of cherries, first, and pears second.

The event at Orlando will be the ideal main stage which will further strengthen the impact of Unitec Group technologies on the US market. Unitec Group have been present with their branches for some years now, in order to be closer to their Customers overseas.

Unitec work closely with Fruit and Vegetable Packing Houses all over the world, with the aim of making their businesses more efficient, by reducing costs and increasing incomes.

Having these precise objectives in mind, Unitec Group designs and manufactures highly customized and integrated technologies, which are able to efficiently meet the specific needs of the whole supply chain, from the field to the supermarket shelves.

Uni 9.0 Pear technology with the Pears Sort 3 system for the internal and external quality selection of pears is a real cutting-edge technology and will be exhibited at the Unitec stand at the Orlando Trade Event. It represents the key elements for building a closer relationship between Unitec and the US.

On July 16th 2018, at the Fruit and Vegetable Packing House Diamond Fruit Growers, located on the Hood River Valley in the state of Oregon, an 18-lane pear line equipped with Uni 9.0 Pear with the Pears Sort 3 system was unveiled. It is the first installation in the world to be completely dedicated to the processing and quality selection of pears.

Speaking of the line's purchase, at the ribbon-cutting ceremony, in which even Unitec Group President Angelo Benedetti was present, Diamond Fruit Growers Chairman Scott Halliday said he is "investing for the success of the future".

His words couldn't be more appropriate to express what Unitec has always shown with the results their Customers have achieved during the years: investing in technology is the key to making a difference on the market and to be successful with a significant competitive advantage that will last for a long time.

In only few months since the line's start-up, the first important results have already been achieved. Diamond Fruit Growers recently stated: "We are very happy with how the line has been running."

"Our objective was to replace our old production volume, which was around 600 – 650 bins dumped a shift. With the new line we are regularly at 700 – 750 bins with some shifts in the 800s and one shift dumped 912 bins."

More efficiency therefore, both in terms of processing costs reduction and an increase of the growing production efficiency.

On the main stage at Orlando, next to Uni 9.0 Pear technology with the Pears Sort 3 system there will be another major character of the Unitec stand: Cherry Vision 3.0 technology for the automatic sorting of cherries.

The Cherry Vision 3.0 system, is an evolution of the Cherry Vision 2 system, which has already given important results to several US Fruit and Vegetable Packing Houses, like the Californian O-G Packing, Morada Produce, M&R Packing and Podesta Packing, just to name a few.

All of them agreed on saying that Cherry Vision 2 technology from Unitec has significantly supported them to achieve their objectives.

Similar results in the USA have been achieved by the Packing Houses which aimed at improving their operations for the processing and the quality selection of their blueberries. Above all, the Fruit and Vegetable Packing House AC foods, located in Oregon and California, have chosen Blueberry Vision 2 technology from Unitec for their blueberries.

Unitec Group President, Angelo Benedetti said: "The results achieved during these years by several US Fruit and Vegetable Packing Houses thanks to Unitec technologies have been constantly improving our satisfaction, gratification and trust in operating in terms of technological innovation which leads to concrete results for our Customers".

In the United States, as in the rest of the world – Europe, South America, South Africa, Far East… – the Unitec team commit themselves everyday, through continuous research and innovation, in order to bring Concrete Results to their Customers. Results in terms of improvement of the processing of pears, cherries and blueberries, as well as other varieties of fresh fruit (green and yellow Kiwifruit, stonefruit, citrusfruit) and vegetables (tomatoes, cherry tomatoes, peppers, eggplants…).
