Mouton Citrus is a family business which started 35 years ago and have now grown into a formidable company, thriving through successful partnerships with key international and empowerment stakeholders through acquisition of farms, development of new generation orchards and the application of cutting edge, best practice technology.

That formed the base to develop a relationship with the MAF GROUP as the supplier of choice for the remodeling of their state of the art packing facilities comprising of:

Double infeed complete system feeding a 8-lane POMONE sizer with 48 outlets to Manual packing on demand  and 2 way return flow tables, Supervision system, External blemish GLOBALSCAN 6, Quality Control System amongst the major features. 

“Supplying retailers and select markets worldwide it is of paramount importance that we deliver consistent quality to our customers whilst having the ability to optimize our product from the orchard. Maf Roda sorting technology delivers this across all specifications and all varieties. The turnkey infeed with packline solution ensures we have a balanced design to optimize productivity though the packing operation. Further, this project had an extremely demanding schedule and Maf Roda’s commitment to deliver on time ensured that the project was completed successfully. We look forward to upgrading another packline to the new Globalscan 7 system this year.”
