History of Aweta

Aweta was conceived out of one man's desire to help vegetable growers in the Netherlands accurately grade their cucumbers and tomatoes. Today Aweta has more than 55 years of experience and is recognized as the Global Technology leader in the market. Read more about our history.


Establishment of Aweta

A pig shed in Nootdorp (Holland) was the first production facility of the very young company Aweta. Adrianus Wilhelmus Tas developed his first mechanical sorting machine, started in-house production and gave his name to the company. It was the start of Aweta's success.


Technological revolution

In the early 1990s, Aweta made technological progress, taking the industry to a higher level. Use of telecamera's, new roll sorters with weight measurement and the birth of the Calistar. To guarantee further development and innovative power, Aweta attracted external expertise.


Growth in product range

Aweta took the step to other products and regions. The sorting company offered an extra dimension through 3D engineering and internal plus external quality sorting. Aweta developed a plant control system and their packaging branch experienced enormous growth.


Relocation of Aweta

The growth that Aweta is experiencing was not possible at the location in Nootdorp. The company therefore moved to a new, almost energy-neutral building, thanks to heat pumps, solar panels and the absence of a gas connection. A new and sustainable building.
