Australian mangoes and berries tracked by Escavox technology

Queensland’s Piñata Farms is using innovative Australian-designed Escavox technology to track the temperature and location of premium berries and mangoes along the supply chain. The company has smart trackers in every berry consignment leaving its main packing operation at Wamuran.

A quick-chill cool room at Piñata’s packing shed uses the latest technology to take field heat out of the berries faster, before packaging in heat-sealed punnets. The Escavox devices, about the size of a mobile phone, are placed by Piñata Farms in a carton or container on loading and are retrieved by Escavox for reuse after the consignment’s arrival.

The tracking tech enables the fruit producer to have real-time data on each carton, giving its exact location and its current temperature. “This was information previously unavailable to us. We now have smart trackers in every berry consignment leaving our main packing operation and every mango load leaving three farms in the Northern Territory during mango season,” said Piñata Farms’ managing director Gavin Scurr.
