Then, using a harvesting hand knife and bending at the waist, the employee grasps the produce, cuts the head from the roots and trims the outer leaves from the head to prepare it to be placed into a tote, bin or carton.

Packers will secure empty containers from designated racks and fill the totes and cartons to specification. Product from conveyer will be packed into bins. Once totes or cartons are filled, they are pushed on to conveyor belt for loaders to close/cover and stack on the pallet. Product on conveyor falls into bins. The totes, bins and cartons for the product are constructed by unfolding and bending the material as designed to form a box. Totes, bins and cartons are labeled and marked as required. The process is repeated. The totes and cartons are lifted then stacked onto pallets on the deck of the harvester or trailer. Totes or cartons with product can weigh up to 50 lbs.
