In 2014, Frumaco Europe introduced mechanised conveyor machines for harvesting fruit in Israel for the first time.
The first machine was put into the field at a major kibbutz in the Golan Heights. This is an area where climatic conditions are ideal for the cultivation of apple and pear crops.
As calculated by the company, the savings achieved through the introduction of our machines fully returned the cost of the investment in just one year. Though this fact is certainly extraordinary, Tecnofruit series machines currently provide the most efficient system for picking fruit in Israel today.
Based on this experience, Frumaco Europe has adapted the conveyor harvesting system to pomegranate crops, which, in recent years, have seen greater diffusion around the world. Harvest tests of this fruit in Israel have shown that the Tecnofruit system saves considerable time, making harvesting exponentially faster. Today, ours is the only machine able to efficiently harvest this valuable fruit, which is yet another demonstration of the flexibility of our harvesting system.
