    Dolling Produce relies on Wyma to redevelop its onion processing line

    Founded in the early 1980s, Dolling Produce has evolved from a general fresh produce supplier growing a mixture of potatoes, carrots and onions, to a specialist onion producer.

Growing around 200 hectares of onions in the Limestone Coast area of South Australia, this fully… Read more

  • Sustainability in food production

    Sustainability in food production

    The world’s food production industry sits at a difficult crossroads. As the global population swells so too does the volume of fresh food required to feed people. However, as our climate changes and resources become scarcer, the need to streamline the supply chain becomes more critical. In September 2015, the United Nations signed up to 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) that set out Agenda 2030, a universal platform to achieve sustainable development globally. The goals bring together the three dimensions of sustainable development – economic, social and environmental – and… Read more

  • Get the most from your onion harvest

    Get the most from your onion harvest

    As much as 40% of fruit and vegetables may be affected by mechanical damage between harvest and sale. Bruising results when an impact on the surface of the produce is forceful enough to damage the internal tissues but not rupture the skin. When designing a processing and packing line, equipment that minimises impact and compression damage should be front-of-mind to retain profitability and the quality that consumers demand. WYMA's latest guide examines what onion growers need to watch out for to prevent bruising, and why that is important to consumers: Read more

You will learn more about: - Why cooling produce is important - The… Read more

  • Sustainability in the pack-house

    Sustainability in the pack-house

    By 2050, the global population will likely increase by 35%, and food production will need to double in that timeframe.
