Packhouse

New Zealand Cherry Corp. owns a state-of-the-art cherry packhouse with a new 10-lane Compac grader.

The packhouse has the latest firmtech machine to measure fruit firmness enabling us to give guidelines for harvest.

Highly efficient systems and processes ensure cherries are received from the orchard and packed very quickly using cool-chain processes with minimum human handling from orchard to packaged product. This means fruit stays in premium condition.

We also have the ability to optically size and colour grade cherries and every cherry has 36 colour and 36 infrared photos taken as it passes through the InVision system.

Efficient packout reporting provides our growers with quick information on how their fruit packed out in terms of percentage export and domestic.

The packhouse processes are fully GLOBALG.A.P. accredited.
