Salad Processing

Fresh cut salad provides many challenges especially with spinach, watercress, rucola, delicate lettuce or even onions, radishes and beetroot. Our advanced salad processing equipment has been revolutionising fresh cut production lines across the globe for 3 decades.

Our salad processing systems start with line input through to fresh cut washing, fresh cut drying, fresh cut grading, fresh cut optical sorting and fresh cut packing stations. Whilst we don’t manufacture most of the OEM supplied machinery on your line, we are an integral part of your production line ensuring a smooth and well-connected transition through each process.

We’re the trusted suppliers of processing equipment to some of the biggest names in the salad industry, right through to aspirational family businesses. We have a proven ability to make businesses better – less wasteful, more efficient, and more profitable.
