Flavourfresh Solfresh group is one of the leading salads producers in the UK, whose business focuses entirely on the growing, packaging and distribution of tomatoes, strawberries and blueberries.

Packaging Automation has been a supplier to Flavourfresh for nearly a decade, since retailers required fresh produce in sealed punnets. In 2004, Flavourfresh purchased two automatic tray sealers from PA, returning later for two high-speed eclipse SL6 tray sealers to increase productivity and efficiency in tomato and strawberry packing.

A high throughput machine capable of sealing up to 100 packs per minute, the SL6 provides cost and environmental benefits combined with greater efficiency, minimum downtime and a consistent seal on all packs. Features include: easy conversion to a twin lane machine; an inbuilt tool loading system for tool changeovers; a top tool with single impression removable cartridges; and quick release cutting blades.

Brendan Gillow, Flavourfresh’s Operations Manager, said, “We have always been happy with PA’s performance, efficiency and after sales care. I would recommend them to anyone looking for a high-speed quality top seal with an after sales service second to none.”
