Tomra sorting solutions

Posted on

Have you ever wondered how food is being sorted these days.

Well, TOMRA has thought it through in a very good way.  They produce machinery that is able to sort shrimps, raisings, dried nuts, potatoes, frozen vegetables, berries, etc …. at lightning speed.

So I was up for the challenge to photograph their products in order to show customers how the sorting of food works, what their machinery can deliver and what the performance is of their sorters.

So I spent the day photographing their sorting machines in order to get a variety of images.  From the feeder, that brings the food down to the sections where it is being sorted – it all had to be photographed.

It was really a fun-filled day of shooting, but it stretched both the photographer, its gear and equipment to the max.  Thanks to the help of the team at TOMRA, we came up with some great and interesting images, of which a small impression will be shown here.
