POP-A-TOP™, by Agrabest, LLC: Broccoli & Cauliflower Production Machinery on the Cutting Edge of Safety & Technology

BAKERSFIELD, CA (May 10, 2010) Advances in technology and manufacturing have put Pop-A-Top™, a broccoli and cauliflower floretting machine, at the top of the list when talking about food production and safety.

In as much as food safety and recalls have been in the news on a regular basis of late, it is worth noting that food safety begins long before we even travel to the grocery store. From proper growing procedures to harvesting and processing, the safety of our food is an important element to Agri-business all over the world.

The Pop a Top™ is the only 3-in-1 unit of its kind in the world. “The design of our machine is key to reducing cross contamination, which is very important for food safety,” said Agrabest President and CEO David Vargas. “Additionally it will reduce labor costs by as much as 70%. In these difficult economic times, there is no better time than now to automate and ensure that the product you are producing is contaminate-free and cost effective for the consumer.”

The Pop a Top™ is the only machine that will pass a shelf-life test for the fresh market. Additionally, this is the only machine of its kind that reduces bruising to cauliflower by 30% over hand floretting. As cauliflower is very delicate, this is of utmost importance to growers and produce buyers alike.

Production of these machines is based in California, however distribution is world-wide. All machinery is custom built to the buyer’s specifications and are constructed of stainless steel wherever possible and comply with stringent, international standards in the field of safety and hygiene.
