Packing automation is a major development at Aweta. Our unique Flex Filler system reduces labour and the manual handling of products.


The Ready-to-Eat Sector is becoming increasingly popular.

Aweta is a trailblazer in this burgeoning sector. Several years ago, we introduced the non-destructive Acoustic Firmness Sensor (AFS), a firmness sensor to determine the softness of each avocado. This sensor is often coupled with the Inscan-IQA-avocado which is able to determine the internal quality of avocados (decay, rot and any internal brown spot). This means growers and packers can easily ascertain via the selection of sorting parameters when an avocado is ready to eat and can be delivered to the retailer.



Avocado Quality
There is a growing demand for higher external and internal quality. External aspects are the main components in the decision to purchase. Internal quality (texture, taste and absence of internal defects) is linked to aspects that are not generally perceived externally but are equally important to many consumers.


Grading Technology

Thanks to the flexibility of our neural network, high resolution cameras and LED technology, the Advanced_Vision_3D optical grading solution has the ability to identify and grade defects based on individual characteristics instead of solely by colour and contrast alone.


Rollerstar has been adapted especially for the shapes of avocadoes. It is Fast. Smooth. Efficient meaning you our avocadoes are in the Best Hands.


High capacity and Precise Weighing Accuracy: The Rollerstar’s patented carrier system ensures an accurate and stable weighing system that operates at high speed while still maintaining an optimum fill rate.
