Mucci Farms partnered with Viscon to create a new automated packing system for their mini cucumber production. This pack line includes a robotic automation that saves an extraordinary amount of labour, and utilizes a special ‘one touch’ concept for the products to be handled: grading and packing in one touch.
In comparison, more traditional packing solutions may see this product being handled as much as 5 times. In our new system the cucumber are handled just once: just one touch. This one touch solution and gentle handling, minimizes product defects, and protects the established quality through the process. Viscon created the entire design ranging from the product arrival from the greenhouse, up to packed and palletized product, and everything in between. The design of the product flow and processes can be secured through tracking and tracing, also provided by Viscon.
Mucci Farms represents 400 acres of greenhouse vegetables through their marketing arm. Mucci supplies to numerous high end retailers, and are highly respected in the greenhouse vegetable marketing industry. The entrepreneurial spirit and passion of this company has been evident ever since their first steps as growers in 1975. This ever growing company has invested again in the next step in packing technology, the first mini cucumber robot.
