Global Pac robotic lines top 1 billion pieces of fruit

Global Pac Technologies, a New Zealand-based company that started marketing the Aporo produce packing robot in 2018, has just hit a major milestone of packing 1 billion pieces of fruit, according to a news release.

The Aporo produce packer, which was invented and manufactured by Robotics Plus Limited, also of New Zealand, is now active in eight countries around the world, robotically packing apples and stone fruit — with more fruit types coming online soon. 

The billionth piece of fruit packed was in France at Vergers de Sennevieres.

“This significant milestone points clearly to collaboration between designers, our leading postharvest automation supply partners and end users, resulting in true industry change and transformation to a typically highly labor-dependent part of the packhouse,” said Cameron McInness, sales director at Global Pac.
