Last quality check

  • When the bananas have left the farm and come to Asoguabo’s warehouse in the port, the quality is checked one more time.
  • The controller checks the appearance and pulp of the fruits, makes sure there are no insects in the boxes and that they are packed and labelled correctly.
  • He also checks the temperature inside the bananas. If they are too warm they can ripen too early, before they reach Europe.
  • The temperature is measured by sticking a thermometer into the bananas. The temperature cannot exceed 29 degrees.
  • When the controller has approved the sample in one or two boxes he gives the order to unload the rest of the boxes from the truck.
  • If the sample is not approved, the whole shipment is discarded.
  • The controllers are not employed by Asoguabo. They work for a company Asoguabo buys the service from.
