Sunkist uses citrus fruit sorter that’s powered by Google AI


The sorting and grading of citrus fruit just got a lot easier thanks to the fully-automated Sunsortai machine, a next-generation sorter from Sunkist Research and Technical Services. The revolutionary new sorter uses Google AI technology to assess the inherent quality of each piece it processes, including any potential defects.

The Sunsortai uses a proprietary imaging system to automatically identify fruit characteristics such as size, shape, weight, blemishes, and even decay that might not be visible to the naked eye. Be it citrus greening, oleocellosis, or citrus cankers, Sunsortai sorters can be trained to recognize the blemishes and defects that matter the most to each packer’s operation.

Because every packhouse is unique, Sunsortaimachines can be customized to serve to each facility’s individual needs and it will readily adapt to existing conveying systems. It employs a proven mechanical design that is fast, reliable—but also gentle—when it comes to handling mass quantities of freshly picked fruit.

After proving successful in Sunkist packing houses, the Sunsortai sorter is now available to any processing facility that needs to increase revenues through fast and accurate sorting.
