TOMRA acquires BBC Technologies

TOMRA has signed an agreement to acquire 100 percent of the shares in BBC Technologies. TOMRA will also acquire www.freshtracker.com, which enables traceability of the origins and characteristics of individual products from harvesting, processing and packaging, through to point-of-sale.

Based in Hamilton, New Zealand, BBC Technologies was founded in 2000. The company makes precision grading systems as well as punnet and clamshell filling solutions for blueberries and other small fruits.

“Following the recent, successful integration of Compac, we are investing more into small fruit and reduced footprint deployments,” said Mike Riley, head of TOMRA Food.

BBC Technologies will operate as a division of TOMRA Food. Head of BBC Technologies, Geoff Furniss, will continue to lead the company, reporting to Mike Riley, head of TOMRA Food.
