Apples are fruits that require delicate handling throughout the sorting and packaging process.  It is crucial for all producers to preserve the integrity of the produce and therefore be able to propose the best production quality by meeting the requirements of the major retail and small retailer circuits, wishing to offer healthy and acceptable fruit to consumers.

MAF RODA AGROBOTIC can offer you high-performance technological solutions for the pre-grading of your apples, in particular with the POMONE grader, associated with electronic sorting sensors for inspecting the colour, diameter and external and internal defects of your produce.

All the grading and packaging equipment is developed taking into consideration the delicate handling of apples, in order to avoid bruising, particularly through the injection of water. Every effort is made in the definition of the packaging lines to enable you to organise your work using versatile tools, while respecting the fruit and managing your orders.

Whether packaging your apples in bushels, on one-tier or two-tier trays, in punnets, in baskets or even in bags, you will find the solutions best suited to your needs among our equipment offerings.

MAF RODA provides you with complete solutions for streamlining your packaging process.

From the raw harvested produce through to delivery to your customers we are attentive to your needs, and we will supply you with our analysis, suggesting machines suited to your mode of operation and in compliance with the regulations.
