Compac was acquired by TOMRA in 2016 and integrated in TOMRA Fresh Food in 2021. This was when TOMRA Food re-organized into two business areas, Fresh Food and Processed Food. Compac had built its reputation as the global leader in fresh fruit sorting technology. The New Zealand-based company designed, manufactured, sold, and serviced packhouse automation solutions that sort fresh produce based on weight, size, shape, color, surface blemishes, and internal quality.
At a time when food producers are consolidating – becoming larger, more sophisticated, and more global – Compac’s technologies perfectly complemented TOMRA’s own fruit inspection and grading technologies. And TOMRA’s size advantage – with world-class R&D programs and a wide-reaching global presence – has enabled Compac’s solutions to benefit many more packhouses around the world.
Today TOMRA Fresh Food is the global leader for integrated, turnkey packhouse solutions for fresh fruit and vegetables. We help packhouses take care of sorting, optimizing, packing, and tracking fresh produce. We also offer a data analytics service which further improves efficiencies. TOMRA Fresh Food currently offers specialized solutions for seven food categories: apples, avocados, blueberries, cherries, citrus, kiwi, and tomatoes.
Today TOMRA Fresh Food is part of TOMRA Food.
