The strawberries are picked by hand and graded into first and second class.
The pickers take the fruit to the supervisor station where it is quality checked and weighed.
The fruit is then taken to the packhouse. All fruit undergoes QC at the intake of the packhouse. We check the temperature, brix, mis-shapes, berry count, size and colour.
The fruit is then placed into the rapid chill tunnel which chills the berries from the air temperature to 5 oc in 1 hour. This process helps to extend the shelf life.
