North East robotics specialist Wootzano has secured a £37.4m ($47m) contract in the US which it says will be transformative for the company.

The County Durham-based designer of systems that can delicately pick up fruit and vegetables to be packaged has signed a three-year agreement with an unnamed organisation that will see its robots sold across California - an agricultural powerhouse that is said to produce more than a third of the country's vegetables and three quarters of its fruits and nuts. Wootzano says the deal will have a state-wide impact that could contribute significantly to California's economic growth through boosting its agriculture sector that is worth billions of dollars.
