Our Story

During the first five years of startup phase...

During the first five years of startup phase, RPL’s core strategic focus and function was directed at research and development of an Autonomous [] Kiwifruit Harvester and a Robotic Apple Packing Cell; building internal capability and strategic relationships; as well as investigating market and customer requirements.   What emerged is an approach to business that provides access to our cutting-edge technological through contract service so our customers do not have to buy complete systems and get the most
up-to-date versions on the market.

We live in a growing world where it is becoming harder to supply healthy food options like fresh produce to people globally and keep maintain a competitive price point against processed alternatives. Robotics can help the sustainable future of fresh produce.

Robotics Plus Ltd can deliver products, processes, services or advice with a complete system perspective.
