While the cannabis industry continues its rapid growth (with global sales expected to reach $33.6 billion during the next three years), the fact remains that raw cannabis is inherently difficult to handle. It is both expensive and fragile, making initial sorting a critical path item in terms of productivity and profitability. Small and large operations can benefit from investing in sorting technology from an established manufacturer that is highly efficient,flexible and completely field-proven over many years -- in short, a cost-effective way to producea higher quality product with higher throughput and less waste.
Consumers seeking healthier snack options or better-for-you plant-based proteins have been steadily increasing the demand for nuts for decades. There are more than 20 types of edible nuts in the world, with a market value estimated to reach USD 2.0 billion by 2025 on a global level. Varieties can include almonds, peanuts, walnuts, pecans, pine nuts, macadamias and more. Each type of edible nut and each stage of the supply chain from "farm to fork" requires sorting to help process this commodity with the goals of meeting size, quality and purity standards, all while maintaining high throughput.
When Dr. Stephen DeFelice coined the term "Nutraceutical"in 1989, he likely never imagined the word would come to represent such a large and fast-growing industry segment. Herbal products, vitamin/dietary supplements, fibers, phytonutrients, pre- and pro-biotics and protein/amino acids can all be found online and on shelving, and business is booming. Increasing numbers of health-conscious consumers, social media platforms touting various dietary health regimens, and pandemic-driven searches for products to strengthen immune system response have pushed nutraceutical industry growth and is expected to continue for the foreseeable future.

The cannabis processing industry has been quiet about processing methods for years. Until recently, manufacturers selling equipment for cannabis processing didn't have a clear understanding of the purpose of their machinery within the industry. Recent legal changes have eased the secrecy around both medicinal and recreational access to THC-containing products.
