In comparison to the previous cooling technology, they cut down their customer claims from 15 to 2 per year, by adopting an efficient InspiraFarms cold room. Through this, they have had about 120,000 USD in savings on claims. Before, it would usually take 48 hours for the pulp temperatures to get to temperatures between 8 and 10°C. Today, it takes them between 30 minutes to an hour, depending on the volumes and heat periods at harvest.
Wiserow has access to a remote monitoring system, InspiraConnect, a set of hardware, intelligent sensors, and data to optimize their post-harvest cooling. With 24/7 access to such data, they now make informed decisions based on data and are now in the process of moving their packhouse to an off-grid solution, using this data. Wiserow points out InspiraFarms’ technical expertise in product design and technical know-how of their produce needs from the point of harvest to deployment for transit.
