Aweta for Agrintesa

A solution for specific needs in sorting and packaging of apples

Massimiliano Severi (in the picture on the right), Area Manager of Aweta Sistemi, tells us about the line installed at Agrintesa cooperative formed by 4,000 farmers considering fruit, vegetables and grape, which preserves, transforms, packs and markets 340 thousand tons of products with an overall turnover amounting to 300 million euros.

"I first met Federico Cavassi, Agrintesa Operations Director for fruit and vegetables - says Severi - who was looking for an apple sorting and packing plant that would meet a series of specific needs: compactness as required by the sorting room, delicacy to sort particularly delicate and high-value fruit like organic produce and optical selection to get the best from each single product".

"In response to these needs, Aweta offered short channels for rational use of space, the sizer Calistar well-known flagship for delicacy, accuracy, silence, ease of maintenance and last but not least, a cutting-edge HW and SW for optical sorting, which guarantees to divide fruit according to specific characteristics, this means perfect differentiation in quality classes. In this way our clientscan enhance the value of each class addressing it to a specific market".

"In these months of full line working - Severi underlines – the winning factor has been the accuracy and constancy of the quality selection that ensures to consolidate credibility and support the customer intent to strengthen and reinforce the presence of Agrintesa brand on the market. In such a fragmented sector where apple variety offer is constantly expanding, having a well recognizable name linked to quality products is certainly a priceless commercial advantage. The difficulties of these years - pandemic, conflicts, energy costs increase, inflation, labor shortage and specifically in this part of Italy - Romagna – flood, have put a strain on agriculture. Therefore, any opportunity to differentiate product must be exploited to get the most."

Severi points out: "I sincerely can confirm that Agrintesa is performing at the best their task as a central cooperative, trying to influence and determine those factors that can be controlled. Aweta with great enthusiasm and determination is at the side of Agrintesa and all their customers in their virtuous and far-sighted intent to obtain and exploit situations of advantage to look with optimism to the future."

Aweta invites all the professionals to come and see at the Fruit Logistica 2024 (Hall 1.1 - Stand A-40) the many solutions in store.
