To address the multifaceted issue of labor shortages and meet the rising demand for high-quality crops, Bosman Van Zaal introduces robotics.
"The horticultural industry faces a staggering annual loss of 1.5 billion due to labor shortages, impacting revenue and crop quality," the Bosman Van Zaal team points out. "The challenges arise from the high cost and limited availability of skilled labor, coupled with the physically demanding nature of horticultural tasks. To address this multifaceted issue and meet the rising demand for high-quality crops, Bosman Van Zaal introduces robotics."
In an effort to combat labor shortages and improve crop yield quality and quantity, Bosman Van Zaal leverages its expertise in automation with the Crea-Tech Robotics brand.
"We are not too shy to say that we are the packaging specialists. A great example of one such process that we can automate with robotics is handle placing. Our Six Pack Handle Placer automatically places labels as handles on six packs, and by doing so, it saves 2 FTE and has a return on investment of 2,5 years."
