Fruit Packing Process

Fruit Packing Process

FarmSoft delivers your choice of simple or comprehensive fruit packing processes, for vegetables, grains, flower, coffee, hops, and other fresh produce.  Easy batch based packing allows ad-hoc, and strict pack to order processes.  Optionally implement FarmSoft Food Manufacturing for advanced value adding activities such as food manufacturing, while maintaining maximum food safety standards.

Batches become the central traceability point for all produce leaving the Packhouse. Easily create new batches and rapidly add materials and fresh produce.  FarmSoft guides employees through the Fruit Packing Process and ensures the correct tasks are performed at the correct times.  For value adding processes, you can optionally record your “good manufacturing process” or the “best practice” in FarmSoft.  Employees will then be guided through the process, being reminded to perform the correct actions at the correct time (eg:  a QC test, or adding an ingredient to a batch) while gathering the required information.   This encourages a higher quality product, with higher quality, in turn maximizing business profitability.Many solutions do not support flexible fruit packing process management, and will not allow you to mix multiple varieties in one batch – FarmSoft handles this with ease. Many solutions can’t handle one batch containing produce from multiple sources (even multiple external suppliers), FarmSoft also handles this with ease as part of the normal fruit packing process.

Fruit Packing Process Management:

  • Define packing processes, employees are guided through the process every time they pack a selected item
  • Create unlimited batches, with inputs such as fresh produce, packing materials, and any other inventory
  • Optional automatic batch creation triggered by scanning raw produce, automatically creates another batch when the origin of scanned produce changes
  • Full traceability of all batch inputs
  • Product processed in a batch can be re-used in another (or unlimited) batches
  • Batch progress management
  • Assign clients to a batch
  • Assign multiple Sales Order Items to a batch, creating batch work orders & instructions
  • Assign managers, and inventory managers to batches
  • Mix unlimited sources of produce (ie: from your farm, external suppliers, co-operative growers) into one batch whilst maintaining traceability
  • Mix unlimited varieties (and even different produce types, eg: leafy lettuce and spinach to make a salad mix) in one batch whilst maintaining full traceability
  • Easy to access based reporting, analysis and KPI’s
  • Bill/Invoice co-operative customers and packing customers for packing services on a batch by batch basis
  • Assign labor & materials to batch costs
  • Report on batch costs
