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.

NSF International, a not-for-profit, non-governmental organisation, is a globally recognised body in standards development, testing and product certification for food safety and public health. The FS-iseries has been accredited by NSF for its design and construction to meet higher standards for hygiene and makes a perfect solution in food packaging and processing applications.

These features coupled with the competitive price of the product makes the FS-iseries an affordably priced checkweigher for non-automated end-of-line packing systems.

The MCI Systems Myrias software is a complete production system able to control a complete production facility.
