BRINGING IDEAS TO LIFE
The raspberry and blackberry growing, processing, and quick-freeze industry has very high hygiene requirements. The berries are hand or machine picked in fields under wet dirty conditions and the wood pallets they used were susceptible to mold, fungus, insects and vermin infestation along with bacteria and other germ hazards. Stratis Sales, Engineering, and Manufacturing coordinated with a couple of the top berry processors in the world to develop two distinctly different berry pallets to operate in their unique automation, quick freeze systems, typical pallet rack systems, fit on their trucks, and be clean and washable unlike any wood or other plastic they had tried before. PLUS the pallets were designed to safely contain the special trays they use in the picking and shipping process. This resulted in the development of our Tray-lok™ patent.
