Cutting-Edge Weigher

Southern Fresh Foods operations manager Peter Walker had an issue. Business was booming for the Hautapu-based company located in a picturesque rural setting close to Hamilton, but it
was clear automation was needed in order to stay ahead of demand. The company, which grows and sells baby leaf salad ingredients – such as rocket, spinach and mesculin – along with small vegetables
and herbs to the higher-end food service industry, was working overtime to package up leafy salad materials in 1kg and 3kg bags, and the task was very labour intensive.
