The co-op board recently purchased and installed a new cracking machine to improve efficiency and quality of nuts being processed through the factory. The new machine has been imported from France. At the moment it is still being fully implemented and assessed.
The board is pleased to know that Shane is having a holiday – along with some work for the co-op while in the US. While he is on leave one of our directors, Nelson Hubber has been acting GM.
A new cracking machine has been purchased for the factory which is expected to have a very positive effect on efficiency. It does not smash the walnuts into small pieces to the extent of the older cracker, therefore making the subsequent sorting process much more automated and less time-consuming. The new machine is currently being set up and tested.
