Small proportions of ethylene for a natural and quick fruit ripening

Has your fruit arrived before being ripe? Do you wish to naturally speed up their ripening to allow them to arrive at an attractive maturation stage in the supermarket?

The ripening process (maturation) is triggered by the fruit’s natural production of ethylene which stimulates the fruit to mature. You can naturally accelerate this process by adding a controlled amount of ethylene mixed with nitrogen in the maturation chambers. Our experts can help you determine the quantity of gas to add depending on the fruit type, its variety and its current maturation state.
