Fox Solutions Modifies Its Pouch Bagger to Accommodate Tree Fruit
- by Kayla Webb
MCALLEN, TX – In an effort to better serve tree fruit packers, the leading fresh produce equipment supplier Fox Solutions added a new capability to its full-polished stainless-steel Pouch Bagger. The machine’s advanced “soft fill” feature now allows the Pouch Bagger to gently handle apples, peaches, pears, and plums to minimize bruising during the packing process.
“Our team is happy to have come up with such a valuable solution for our tree fruit customers,” said Aaron Fox, President of Fox Solutions, in a press release. “Since introducing our Pouch Bagger last year, we have had a phenomenal response from customers who have wanted an efficient solution to meet the growing demand for pouch bagged produce. The majority of baggers on the market can pack fruit of all kind, but few are fresh produce specific like ours. There simply isn’t a comparable piece of equipment that handles the fruit in a gentle enough way to prevent unnecessary bruising.”
First introduced in 2016, Fox Solutions’ Pouch Bagger is a one-of-a-kind machine engineered to handle a wide variety of fresh produce items while simplifying the pouch bagging process. It delivers maximum bagging efficiency, holding 300 empty bags at a time and filling up to 30 bags a minute.
To see the Pouch Bagger in action, stop by booth #1845 at PMA Fresh Summit where the Fox Solutions team will be demonstrating its Wicketed Bagger, Newtec weighers, and Pouch Bagger. Hope to see you there!
