Fox Solutions modifies Pouch Bagger for tree fruit
Fox Solutions, a fresh produce equipment supplier, adds a new capability to its full-polished stainless steel Pouch Bagger to better serve tree fruit packers. The machine’s advanced “soft fill” feature allows the Pouch Bagger to gently handle apples, peaches, pears and plums to minimize bruising during the packing process, according to the company.
Fox Solutions’ Pouch Bagger, first introduced in 2016, is engineered to handle a wide variety of fresh produce items while simplifying the pouch bagging process. It holds 300 empty bags at a time and filling up to 30 bags a minute.
“Our team is happy to have come up with such a valuable solution for our tree fruit customers,” said Aaron Fox, president of Fox Solutions. “Since introducing our Pouch Bagger last year, we have had a phenomenal response from customers who have wanted an efficient solution to meet the growing demand for pouch bagged produce. The majority of baggers on the market can pack fruit of all kind, but few are fresh produce specific like ours. There simply isn’t a comparable piece of equipment that handles the fruit in a gentle enough way to prevent unnecessary bruising.”
The Fox Solutions team will be demonstrating their Wicketed Bagger, Newtec weighers and Pouch Bagger at PMA Fresh Summit booth #1845 Oct. 20–21. For more information about Fox Solutions, visit www.solutionsbyfox.com.
