Fresh fruit cold storage

The storage of fresh fruits and vegetables is influenced by various factors, with temperature being the primary determinant. An effective storage solution can significantly slow down the deterioration process, prolonging the shelf life of your produce by maintaining the correct temperature ranges.

Challenges in produce storage

During peak harvesting seasons, businesses often encounter efficiency challenges due to labour shortages, unsustainable practices, suboptimal harvest, and waste management issues. Overcoming these seasonal operational challenges requires thorough planning and preparation.

Importance of high-quality cold storage

Investing in high-quality cold storage is pivotal in maintaining optimal temperatures and extending the storage duration of your produce, thereby supporting your business goals.

Blast chillers and freezers for fruits and vegetables

Our range of blast freezers is designed for the rapid and efficient freezing and storage of fruits and vegetables, preserving their freshness and nutrition. These cold rooms are well-suited for hygienic food processing areas and the storage of fresh produce.

Benefits of proper preservation post-harvest

Effective post-harvest preservation techniques can help reduce respiratory activity and enzymatic degradation, minimise water loss and wilting, inhibit the growth of decay-producing microorganisms, and decrease the production of the natural ripening agent, ethylene. By meeting these high preservation standards, businesses can fulfil customer demand year-round, as rapid freezing without damage ensures that produce remains as fresh and flavourful as the day it was harvested.
