Soft Fruit Farm - Farm Management System
Optimizing Packhouse System Average Weight System Labour and Task recording Field and HR System Packaging, Materials, Stock and Traceability Control
A producer, packer and distributor of high-quality Scottish berries installed a complete Farm Management System. The farm which has 100 acres of tunneled production and a modern 16,000 sq feet BRC (British Retail Consortium) accredited pack house, supplies Scottish supermarkets and local outlets with high-quality strawberries and other soft fruits.
MCI Systems installed the complete package, which utilizes the MCI Myrias suite of data capture software.
The packhouse has multiple units of the A&D FS-iseries waterproof traffic light checkweighers. These fast, robust scales which are W&M approved are controlled from the Myrias software to ensure compliance with Average Weight Software, while minimizing giveaway and increasing throughput. The A&D FS-i range of EC approved, IP-65 waterproof and NSF (National Sanitation Foundation) certified scale was chosen because of its ultra-fast response time of just 0.5 second, large LCD display, brightly coloured comparator lights and the easy connectivity to PC systems.
