Aweta is the industry trail-blazer when it comes to the supply and manufacture of turn-key solutions for the grading and packing of fresh fruit and vegetables. Aweta was conceived out of one man’s desire to help vegetable growers in the Netherlands accurately grade their cucumbers and tomatoes. He developed a mechanical sorting machine, started in-house production of it and gave his name to the company Aweta (Adrianus Wilhelmus Tas). Today we are recognised as the Global Technology leader in the market. With Sales and Service representation in more than 45 countries around the world, we have developed a deep understanding of the local market, its produce and needs.
