Repacking Process at our own repacking facilities
Repacking to make consumer packs on behalf of each store
Many items sold in stores today are consumer packs. And it is very difficult and costly for each store to prepare such items themselves. That's where Watari can also help. We repack fruit and vegetables at our own processing centers to prepare the cosumer packs for all their stores on behalf. By centralizing the repacking process, we can provide our client's stores with better quality for less cost.
Cutting Process under good hygienic conditions
Hygienic management based on HACCP
Recently, the demand of cut fruit and vegetables has grown substantially in Japan. It reflects the social changes in Japan such as the aging population with diminishing number of children,increasing numbers of nuclear families or dual-income households. As average family size gets smaller or dual-income households become common, the demands of smaller packs or precut products have been increasing. We can provide our clients with such items by processing (cutting) fruit and vegetables in our own processing facilities with good hygienic conditions.
