Up to 2018, La Canne Vale has developed and marketed two machines: one for fruit thinning, and one for fruit collecting. With these machines, organic growing of apples, prunes, apricots, peaches, olives, almonds costs less than chemicals based growing. La Canne Vale has sold its thinning machine, the Eclairvale, in France, Italy, Spain, Israel, Australia, Morocco, Chile.
Now the company needs long term funding to implement a worldwide network of resellers while keeping on developing new solutions for sustainable fruit agriculture.
Bonus: using the collecting machine to thin trees makes it possible to collect flowers and small fruits, which are rich in useful elements and have a commercial value higher than the mature fruits themselves.
