Innovation of The Year Winner 2018

This initiative brought together cherry growers to develop modern grading facilities, generating sufficient volume of product to create economies of scale. The facility is the first of its kind in the UK and has contributed to increased sales and customer satisfaction.
Historically British cherries have been hand graded. With inaccurate grading, increasing problems with sourcing labour, this sector needed a solution to meet its forecast of significant growth in tonnage.

The creation of a new grower group, British Cherry Growers, and collaboration to build a bespoke system with Unitec has created a homogenous product, produced in scale with a high degree of efficiency and reliability.
