When talking to our customers around the world, they have the same challenges in their processing businesses: labour, worker safety, hygiene and product safety and quality control. The most cost-effective way to address these issues is automation.
Our point of difference lies in our ability to develop and deliver custom solutions in response to each customer’s specific needs.
Drawing on our full range of equipment and integrating these with additional equipment from other suppliers, H&C can provide complete line integration and optimisation.
For suppliers of fresh produce we provide integrated solutions from carton erecting and packing to palletising and storage.
For secondary processors of fresh produce we also provide a solution for the front end of operations, from de-palletising through de-packaging and recipe management to deliver produce ready for further processing.
AiCo, H&C and Milmeq technologies have a reputation for reliability and simplicity of operation.
The following products feature in our solutions for fresh produce packers and processors:

A number of options are available for the magazines supplying the cartons, in regards to both the quantity of different magazines and their location on the lids.
