Integrate with scales from your chosen vendor of weighing equipment. Weigh entire trucks, trailers, or pallets. Using farmsoft, the tare of truck, trailer, containers, and pallets can be deducted from the gross delivery weight.

Improve your delivery processes by allowing farmsoft to automatically grab the weight of a delivery and deduct tare and container and packaging weights to get the true and accurate nett weight. Print labels and store your fresh produce rapidly.

With farmsoft's weighing equipment integration, you can increase the accuracy of fresh produce deliveries, while decreasing the time taken to record each fresh produce delivery. 

Scale integration for fresh produce requires vendors provide an API (REST) or an app that inserts the current scale weight into the clipboard on a Windows or Android device. This allows farmsoft to integrate with scales and weighing equipment from a large number of vendors at a very low cost to you.

Automation On Fruit And Vegetable Grading System And Food Traceability

Zest Labs to determine how Zest Fresh can help both monitor and improve freshness, while providing complete traceability through the cold supply chain,” said John Griesenbrock, Hy-Vee's Vice President, Produce/Health Markets, in a press release. With traceability support, we will become even more invested in bringing the freshest and highest-quality produce to our customers.”

The Tester Amendment to FSMA contains flawed thinking in that small growers have less risk of having a food safety issue. There is no reason that any grower should be exempt from food safety guidelines, including traceability. A small grower selling their product into the marketplace where it will end up on a family's table should have to play by the same rules as everyone else. There are many low-cost solutions to print labels. One thing the federal government could do is provide subsidies to small growers to help them obtain a GS1 number. The bottom line is: If you are in the farming business, you should be taking precautions to ensure your produce is safe and traceable regardless of the size of your operation.

Sugar has never been such a public enemy. Blamed for obesity, contributing to heart disease, diabetes and other health threats, sugar is the cause of additional taxes on sodas, is what consumers are trying to eliminate from their diets, and has even been given a second line on the upcoming Nutrition Facts panel. Added sugars will be called out on a separate line on the FDA's updated Nutrition Facts panel, which originally was to become the rule this July 26 but has been delayed indefinitely, probably till January 2020. Whole fruit, fruit pieces, dried fruit, pulps and purees (which contain intrinsic sugars) are not considered added sugars. If a fruit juice blend is reconstituted such that the sugar concentration is less than what would be…
