Thanks to the return on investment in its first facility, Lauetta expanded its production operations by 20 Ha and resulting cooling capacities. Due to the efficiency of their cooling investment, the enterprise has received outstanding performance with low claims. With their excellent pre-cooling systems, they now have the necessary shelf-life required to travel around 25 days by sea, while still delivering excellent display quality to their destination on shelves.
With total control around key cooling aspects such as temperature and humidity, their post-harvest systems are fully reliable and have allowed them to reduce their OPEX by reducing their use of airfreight by 40% and shifting to the cheaper alternative of sea freight.
Moving forward, the enterprise is planning on loading its own reefers to go to port for its sea freight containers. This way, they would need to design a loading bay for their own truck and reefer. Luckily, the modular nature of the InspiraFarms Cooling machine means that they can accomplish this expansion and load their truck between 25 – 30 minutes (16 skids) on their own truck and a reefer that can accommodate up to 24 skids to be loaded in 45 minutes.
