Extending Shelf Life & Quality by Ethylene Removal

fresher-tasting-tomatoes-and-peppers

Tomatoes which keep longer than expected

Our main benefits are the improved appearance of the tomatoes and the longer shelf life for the producer and the consumer. The tomatoes will have better texture and shore, they will also have improved weight as dehydration is less.

One of the effects of ethylene on many species is the induced loss of chlorophyll and where on the vine tomatoes are being sold it has a huge difference on the vine colour and the retention of tomatoes on the vine.

We have achieved improved shelf life of cherry, piccolo and large vine tomatoes in tests using the PCO technology. Ethylene removal can help extend shelf life and promote a healthier, quality product.

  • I most certainly would recommend the White air system in the retention of quality and of market management of the product.

  • After a very short while we observed better air quality and the pigs were most certainly performing better.
