Unitec Blueberry Vision: “a revolution in the blueberry industry”

Accuracy and reliability in product classification. And blueberry exports are growing. “We believe Unitec Blueberry Vision is a revolution in the blueberry industry. In a couple of years at most those who do not have this technology will be out of the industry.” This is what Cristobal Duke, General Director of Collipulli (Chile) said about Unitec Blueberry Vision technology at the end of last season. Unitec Blueberry Vision is the first technology worldwide that can eliminate any defective product, analyzing the whole fruit both internally and externally. This essential aspect opens a new frontier in the selection and classification of blueberry quality, making it possible to see both the pulp and skin of the fruit. “Thanks to Unitec Blueberry Vision – says Alejandro García, owner of the Chilean company Prize – we got rid of manual selection, there are no people sorting blueberries anymore. I believe that there are no chances to select something when you have millions and millions of blueberries passing in front of your eyes. You may sort out some major defects, but actually it is impossible to make a selection for soft fruit or for defects which are not visible to the naked eye. Today we are really sorting blueberries, in the past we were not. Because of this, it does not matter if we have 10%, 15% or 20% of bad fruit; our final product is now better, consistent and homogeneous.” With Unitec Blueberry Vision you can select and classify fruits according to their degree of ripeness and softness. It is also possible to sort with absolute accuracy external visible defects, like peeled or dry...
