Wootzano appoints industry expert Dr. Barry Mulholland as director of Fresh Produce Robotics

Wootzano Ltd is a UK company that produces highly dexterous robots for fruit and vegetable packaging such as tomatoes and grapes. Today, it issued a press release stating:

"Dr Barry Mulholland, an industry leader in the field of pre- and post-harvest crop management, will be joining the team in the new year at Wootzano, a Sedgefield-based company and home of the robotic system, Avarai.

With the company's strong growth predicted for 2022, Barry's knowledge will shed much needed light on the challenges that are often overlooked in the sector. His experience with new technology usage and development will help fine-tune future system enhancements, resulting in a product that is tailored to the needs of pack houses.

Barry had this to say: “I am delighted to be joining Wootzano at this critical time for the industry. The Wootzano Avarai system is an essential tool for the fresh produce sector to move from a lack of staff to soft handling robotics that inspect and pack for retail. These robotic systems are affordable and go beyond human, which will improve the efficiency of an industry that has been hit hard by Covid, staff shortages and Brexit.”

Earlier this year, Wootzano secured one of the largest contracts from any British robotics company at £300 million and see no sign of slowing down.

CEO and Founder Dr. Atif Syed enthusiastically stated:  “We are pleased to get Barry on board. His expertise in pack houses will be instrumental to assist our existing customers and new customers coming on board to experience how Avarai  can make a change in their pack-houses.”

We look forward to working with you Dr. Barry Mulholland, welcome to the team."
