Cutting-edge equipment

Passion put into growing apples is not just for apple growers.  Here we would like to introduce the cutting-edge equipment that Japanese engineers have developed.

Apple-sorting Machine: The current sorting machine is a combination of quality control, transportation and sorting.

Quality Measuring System(right) :

Measures sugar content, acid content, ripeness, honey core and browning using a light sensor.

  • Image Processing System (left):

measures size, color and damage using a color camera.


CA Storage (Controlled Atmosphere Storage) System:

The composition of the air isartificially changed and in combination with refrigeration, prevents a decline in quality and allows the fresh fruit to be stored longer.
