Duijndam is a real family business which has been run for over 35 years by sons Jan and Willem-Alexander and their father and mother. They really wanted to expand their existing (20 year old!) Greefa grading machine with a weighbridge for weighing the peppers. Eventually, they decided to buy a new machine. In collaboration with the family, Greefa developed the CombiSort for grading peppers on size and weight.
Full of pride next to their new Greefa pepper grader
For some time now, the pepper world has switched from size to weight grading. It is becoming more common for peppers to be packaged and sold individually or with a few items. The measured weight is then shown on the packaging.
The peppers are semi-automatically put in boxes. This saves a lot of labour and is ergonomic.
