Hydroponic / Vertical Leafy Greens

Are your hydroponic / vertical farms post-harvest processes completely automated in an integrated line?  All the way through case packing?

We have taken our engineering and integration expertise, and applied it to tiered automation installations for hydroponic farm and vertical farm lettuce and leafy greens lines.

We have solutions for leafy greens from brassicas to lettuce to migrgreens

Leafy green options are plentiful, and include lettuce processing, salad greens and mixes, microgreens and/or other leafy vegetables processing. They also include some brassicas, typically the more leafy ones.  For other brassicas processing, please see our broccoli & cauliflower line, as well as our root vegetable line.  .

Leafy Greens are a hot product in the marketplace, one of the fastest growing (pun intended). However, even greens grown in controlled conditions still need to be washed / cooled and cool dried at an absolute minimum. Reducing all human touchpoints through this process also helps mitigate contamination and wilting.
