Fox Solutions President Aaron Fox Discusses Improved Pouch Bagger
- by Robert Schaulis
MCALLEN, TX - Boasting a new-and-improved machine to eliminate shrink and improve efficiency, Fox Solutions is offering its customers the best possible ways to package value-added product.
I recently had an opportunity to speak with Aaron Fox to learn more about the company’s new-and-improved pouch bagger and its innovative features.
“We’ve done some modifications from the machine that we introduced last year,” Aaron tells me. “What it has now is a soft-fill function…for products that are sensitive to drop—apples and stonefruit—so it eliminates the damage to those products.”
The new machine, Aaron tells me, eliminates damage to fruit while filling bags as efficiently as possible.
“What makes this machine different from other machines is it's built in-house by us, all stainless steel construction. It’s not a machine that was retrofitted for its function; it’s specifically built for pouch bag filling for produce houses and produce,” he tells me.
See the pouch bagger for yourself this weekend at the Viva Fresh Produce Expo. A finalist for the inaugural Gateway to Innovation Awards, you can take a look at this product at booth #64. For more, check out our video interview above.
