That’s because the product has to stay intact since Oxygen in the air can cause it to ripen quickly. But Controlled Atmosphere containers that run on advanced technology ensure regulated amounts of CO2, Oxygen and Nitrogen levels. Thus slowing down ripening and preserving perishable produce.
We use the latest in Controlled Atmosphere Technology to ensure fruits and other products remain as fresh as ever when they arrive at their destination.
