Halls' pack houses follow strict protocols to ensure that the receipt, grading, packing and refrigeration of fruit is completed in an efficient manner while meeting the all important parameters of Food Safety, Food Quality, Traceability and Legality.
Halls' packing operations are located in South Africa, France (Paris and Marseille) and the Netherlands and are equipped with the latest technology.
Post-harvest cold chain management begins from the moment the fruit is picked from the tree. It is the key objective of management to ensure the fruit is collected swiftly from the orchard and delivered for grading and packing within a defined period.
Employing state-of-the-art equipment and Halls' expertise, fruit is sorted, graded and packed according to specific market or customer specifications. All packaging carries the relevant information to ensure that the fruit can be traced back to its origin. The fruit then enters the cold chain to be optimally managed through to its destination.
Halls strives to supply our customers with packaging formats to meet their specific requirements. Current formats include:
Flow-wrapped punnets in either 1, 2, 3 and 4 avocados per punnet
Heat-sealed punnets of 1 or 2 avocados per punnet
