Ripen Tech

Growers are obligated to produce fruit to a contracted weight in the wine and orchard industries for supermarkets. Traditional methods are not accurate (~30% of harvested weight) leading to common downstream issues such as over ordering of consumables or rejection of product. Founded in 2023, Ripen Tech has developed an IoT device that weighs fruit in real-time while still on the plant. This technology provides growers the ability to improve irrigation real-time, increase yield, avoid fruit loss and select an optimum harvest date to improve fruit quality.
