The manual labor intensive process of peeling fruits and vegetables means that it is also one of the most expensive task for any operation especially with labor cost rising nationally. When using the ASTRA Inc. lineup you are able to immediately increase the productivity of staff by saving valuable time and increasing production volumes.  


Traditional hand peeling of fruits and vegetables by unskilled workers results in high waste and in some cases with fruits like Pineapples yields can be as low as 60%. In an industry with already tight margins, that waste is money being thrown away. The ASTRA Inc. lineup offers significantly increased yields helping decrease food cost, boosting those margins.


To ensure the highest throughput and minimal down time, all models are tool-less disassembly. Changing blades or other components takes only seconds keeping production flowing. Additionally models are designed to be Clean-in-Place adhering to cGMPs set by the FDA.


The versatility of these models allows operators to peel & zest over 24 varieties of fruits & vegetables including: Apples, Apricot, Beets, Grapefruit, Jicama, Kiwi, Lemon, Lime, Mango, Melons, Onion, Orange, Papaya, Peach, Pear, Pineapple, Plums, Potato, Pumpkin, Quince, Radishes, Rutabaga, Squash, Taro Root, Tomatoes, Turnip, Yams, Yuzu & MORE! 


With a minimal foot print and the ability to be stand or table mounted, along with Standard 120V plugs makes the complete lineup of ASTRA Inc. peelers easy to integrate into any production cut floor or kitchen prep area.
