ULMA Packaging Ltd will be presenting shelf-life extending packaging machinery, specifically designed for the fresh produce sector, at the prestigious Fruit Focus event at the East Malling Research Centre in Kent, on Wednesday July 24th 2015.
Established in Northern Spain over 50 years ago, ULMA is a leading supplier of packaging machinery to Europe’s fruit sector. The company can offer a wide range of innovative solutions for virtually any packaging requirement in fresh produce.
The company’s UK technical team will be on hand at the Fruit Focus exhibition to discuss with visitors its advanced wrapping technology and fully automated lines – with crate packing and palletising – suitable for a wide range of citrus and exotic fruits.
Many fruit growers are already reaping the benefits from investing in packaging machinery from ULMA, such as the F305 horizontal flowrapper and Atlanta tray-less flowrapper. Other applications include Vertical form fill seal, Thermoforming, Tray-sealing and Stretch Film – each with their own specialised technology for extending the conservation of each fruit.
The F305 has been built around a state of the art PC processor which stores up to 99 different packaging profiles, enabling a high level of flexibility for different product changeovers. ULMA’s popular Atlanta tray-less flowrapper is offered in a variety of configurations based on hard fruit arriving in cardboard boxes, pallet boxes/plastic crates or straight from the grading process.
Suitable for large, medium and smaller fruit growers the Atlanta can be used for the tray-less packing of a cross-range of fresh produce, which will allow some producers to have the option of often using just one system for all their produce production as it can also be configured to run with conventionally filled punnets from a de-nester.
ULMA’s UK Managing Director, Chris Pickles, said: “We are a leader in the fresh produce sector with wrapping solutions that can help companies optimise their packaging to combat consumer food waste and improve pack presentation. We are delighted to be attending Fruit Focus again where visitors can discuss their specific requirements in detail with ULMA’s technical team.”
Fruit Focus is the ideal platform for ULMA, which has a long and impressive background in the fresh produce arena and is an approved supplier to multiple retailers and others involved in the packaging of a cross-section of products including tomatoes, potatoes, onions, mangos, avocadoes, oranges, lemons and even kiwis.
