Storage Types

AGA has capacity to store over 7500 bins totalling approximately 2500 tonnes. We constantly monitor the fruit quality whilst in store and prior to despatch.

We operate three main types of storage: -

Controlled Atmosphere (CA)

For longer term storage, fruit is stored in a refrigerated low oxygen atmosphere that reduces degradation.

All CA stores are managed by a computer controlled system that allows remote monitoring and control of storage conditions. Nitrogen generators and scrubbers are employed to rapidly achieve the optimum storage environment.

Cold Storage

Suitable for the short term storage of top fruit. Fruit is stored below a temperature of 3 degrees centigrade.

Dry Storage

Our dry stores are suitable for non perishable goods.
