Storage

Scotian Gold has 60 controlled atmosphere (CA) rooms and 5 dynamic controlled atmosphere rooms that are monitored by our SafePod technology. We have the capacity to store over one million bushels.

In our CA rooms, we remove the oxygen to slow the respiration rate and put the apples in a dormant state to slow their ripening process in order to extend the marketing season.

Presort Line

Scotian Gold is the only facility in Atlantic Canada with a dedicated presort system capable of running 600 bins per shift.

The equipment automatically sorts the fruit for size, colour, internal and external defects. Water is used throughout the entire process in order to minimize bruising.
