Van der Avoird Trayplant, based in the Netherlands, is specialized in propagating strawberry and raspberry plants. A few years ago, they approached TTA with the request to automate their sorting process. Meanwhile, we provided Van der Avoird Trayplant with their third (!) selection robot. Soft fruit plants are selected into two grades. A 100% filled tray that will be delivered directly to their clients and a tray with plants that still needs a period of growth.
Van der Avoird Trayplant main reasons for automation are a lack of personnel, process optimization and saving labor cost.
We are proud contributing to the automation of this fast-growing company and look forward continuing the pleasant cooperation and further expansions in the future.
