By automating fresh produce quality control processes and structuring the resulting data, Clarifruit helps companies move into the era of Big Data. Learn how you can use our solution to share your information internally or externally at any time, filter, report and use data mining to get the value that’s lying dormant in the data you’re collecting each and every day.
When we started Clarifruit, we were leading the way with a brand-new vision for digitizing and automating the quality control process for fresh fruits and vegetables. We could see the potential for our technology – the first of its kind. Over the past few years, the market has shifted. The benefits are now being realized by many customers across the US, Europe, LatAm and Asia, and we no longer need to introduce prospects to the potential of Clarifruit. We can show customers by the numbers what they often know already – that automating their QC process has a measurable impact on their bottom line.
Like death and taxes in life, if there’s one thing that’s inevitable in the world of fresh fruits and vegetables, it’s defects! You can’t always avoid them. But as a supply chain stakeholder, whether you are an exporter, importer or a retailer, you can better manage the actions you take when you see fruit and vegetable defects by adding more insight into the kinds of defects that develop, and utilizing a consistent view of what makes your customers satisfied.
As Clarifruit’s vision of a streamlined, more accurate and consistent fresh fruit and vegetable quality control process takes root (no pun intended) across the value chain, many jobs will change for the better. Let’s look at the existing process for a QC manager at a wholesaler, and the changes that could make all the difference.
Cherries are a complex fruit, which means if your job is to inspect cherry quality – that’s complex too! This makes it even more important to get it right quickly!

When talking table grapes, you can probably summon up a picture in your mind of the perfect fruit. But did you know that this picture is probably vastly different depending on where you are in the world and that this significantly impacts grape QC? Here are just a few of the differences that you might experience.
Did you know that more than 20% of fruit and vegetables are lost between harvest and retail? This problem is larger than the produce itself, already a devastating reality. It is also having a heavy impact on water shortages, with blue water attributable to food waste at around 6% of all total withdrawals.
At first glance, it might not seem like AI and fresh produce have much to do with one another, but here at Clarifruit we’ve found a synergy that opens up new opportunities for stakeholders across the fresh produce value chain, from growers and packing houses, through to retailers’ distribution centers and end-users.
