Italian machinery company celebrated 100 year history of sorting at Macfrut 2024

The participation at Macfrut 2024 was an opportunity for Unitec to celebrate, as it coincided with the 100-year anniversary of the company (1924-2024). It was 1924 when the first sorters by Dalle Vacche appeared in Massa Lombarda.

In this historical company, through the integration of new entrepreneurial experiences, Unitec has its roots. From the outset, Unitec immediately stands out for the development and application of new, non-destructive technologies for quality selection of fruit and vegetables, with the aim of providing concrete answers to satisfy the needs of fruit and vegetables companies.

This journey, started in the Twenties of the last century, was characterized by research, analysis, and experimentation, and guided by a passion for concreteness as well as a continuous pursue of perfection, where customer results are the ultimate goal. "We work for your results", therefore, as the Unitec mission declares. 100 years of constant innovation in the sorting and selection of internal and external quality of fruit and vegetables, as well as in all the other handling stages of packing houses, constantly engineering the most modern technologies for the development of solutions that can bring concrete benefits to customers and that are often characterized by exclusive patents.

An important milestone of the Unitec Group in Macrut, is following its vocation for innovation which is currently represented by the opportunities offered to the produce industry by robotics, from the field to the sales outlet, through the packing houses.

Unitec has already successfully sorted more than 50 types of fruit and vegetables and it is now getting ready to face the next challenges, leveraging the know-how built in a century.
"A hundred years for a company sound like a long time only when one feels tired and has lost motivation," states Angelo Benedetti, President of Unitec.

"The incentives that our customers around the world give us every day, by trusting us, are a long-life elixir for us: we frequently manage to build partnership paths that make us look forward to the next 100 years, to keep giving them results thanks to our solutions and our continuous innovation," states Benedetti.

Among the innovations presented at the trade show, it is worth mentioning:
Uni Smart Tray Filler automatic filler which allows packing of different varieties of fruit such as peaches, nectarines, and apples in trays or in trays inside crates. Unical 244 Dates
Electronic sorter dedicated to handling products of small dimensions, such as damson plums, small tomatoes, jujubes, olives, radishes, chestnuts, walnuts, and dates.

Many innovations on the internal quality selection systems front, with solutions made entirely by the company's R&D department, dedicated to specific fruits in the Uniq range. The Unical 222 blueberry sorting machine, was also displayed.
