Salheya Citrus Packhouse Project
Citrus Packhouse and cooling – 300t per day
The facility is 800m² under roof with more than 400 people working in the facility. The packhouse receives 320 tons of oranges which is then cleaned, pre-sorted, treated and waxed. The waxed products are then graded and sorted in quality punnets accurately made to weight and then assembled into pallets. The pallets is then cooled to 4°C in 24 hours and then shipped in a total of 15 refrigerated shipping containers.
The facility was design to comply with GlobalGAP and BRC requirements and achieved one of the highest scores with a first audit. The design took into account the logistics of receiving and shipping large volumes of fruit, managing 450 workers and handling and distributing packing materials.
