Valery analyzes the raw material, determining its product characteristics

It is useful for raw material buyers, helping to perform a smart purchase by evaluating how the raw material will be processed by the plant. It can be used online, into the plant, to monitor the raw materials during their processing.

What is it

Valery is an extremely innovative device and represents all the courage and enthusiasm of Caronte Consulting.It is a smart innovative device equipped with artificial vision capable of determining the product characteristics of the raw material. The device is designed to understand what is a “good raw material“, as an user would.So far, the concept of “good raw material” was defined on the basis of the fact that this was fresh, genuine, carefully cultivated, which was free from pesticides or pathogens, which had important nutritional and organoleptic properties, etc.With Valery this concept is renewed: the raw material is also chosen based on how this will be processed by the plant. For example, Valery will advise a buyer to not buy a raw material that has important nutritional properties if they will be discarded during processing! Also, Valery helps the buyer also determine what is the right price for the raw material you want to buy!Valery can be used directly in the plant: the technologists can use it to validate the raw material upon his arrival, before being worked!
