Controlled Atmosphere Storage Solutions

Naturally slow down the maturation of your fruit during storage and transportation

Are you shipping your harvested fruit to far regions and would like to make sure they do not arrive spoiled at their destination? Or are you trying to handle the seasonality of your fruit to ensure a constant supply the whole year round?

Reducing the oxygen levels and controlling the CO₂ concentration in your storage area combined with reduced temperatures and controlled humidity levels can help you to significantly extend the shelf life of your fruit.

Our controlled atmosphere storage solutions reduce the oxygen levels in the atmosphere of the storage area by injecting specific amounts of nitrogen. If you have a non-hermetic storage areasuch as shipping containers or cargo holds—our solutions can constantly monitor the oxygen and carbon dioxide levels, and inject nitrogen when needed, to continuously keep an optimal, lowered-oxygen concentration.
