Nicofruit, an Italian fresh produce company based in southern Italy, have just signed a brand new deal with pack house experts MARCO to build a state of the art packing line for their grapes and soft fruit.
This will be a multipurpose line- packing both cases and punnets along a complex conveyor system featuring palletisers, flow wrap machines and case packing positions.
Nicofruit have chosen MARCO as their partners, in a bid to create one of the most modern, innovative packing facilities in Italy. After detailed discussions, a bespoke packing design has been created featuring a quad deck conveyor system, flanked by scales. This line will run MARCO’s award winning Yield Control Module.
Alessandro Tristano, Nicofruit’s Managing Director is excited by the new deal ‘We can’t wait to start working with MARCO. This line has great potential for us to pack our fruit in the most efficient way possible.’
MARCO’s Director Murray Hilborne is equally pleased ‘Nicofruit are a brilliant company, who have been around a long time and really know their fruit. We can’t wait to become their packing partners for the upcoming season.’
Nicofruit was founded in 1994, and is a traditional family run business. Made up of over 30 partners cultivating over 400 hectares of land, Nicofruit harvests a variety of products including grapes, strawberries and stone fruit.
