A33 FOR DEMONSTRATIONS
An Automac A33 automatic tray wrapping machine has been made available for prospective pack house managers to try out. These machines have proven that they can wrap most spherical produce, such as lettuce and cauliflower, very effectively. The Johannesburg office is managing this programme. Speak with Paresh or Dale on 011794823.
There has been a temporary setback to ensuring continuous supply of rubber bands as the supplier hiked prices by over 30%. Discussions with a reliable and well-priced, quality driven, new supplier are well advanced and orders are being finalised.
We have numerous exciting plans for developing our business this year. We will announce these closer to the time. Watch this space!
We wish all our customers and suppliers a successful 2011.
