Product Quality, Food Safety And Freshness

As a grower, you wage a battle not only against the elements, but also airborne contaminants. From ethylene, to cross-contamination from mold spores, bacteria and mycotoxins; the fight to keep produce as fresh and safe as possible is unceasing. Yet most of the threats to your work come from airborne contaminants you can’t even see.

By installing an Airocide® bioconversion system where your harvest is stored you can eliminate virtually all airborne mold and ethylene gas, as well as bacteria, viruses, and pathogens in that environment.

As the first step in the food chain, with today’s emphasis on food safety and traceability, your operation is the first to be blamed if your crop can’t survive delivery to the store or is somehow contaminated. Discover how your contemporaries are winning the battle by storing their post-harvest products in Airocide-protected environments. Explore their stories of success below.

CASE STUDY: London Fruit

London Fruit, Inc, trades on its food safety standards, product quality and on its ability to trace products from their own and client grower’s fields to the customer’s store shelf. The company is in the business of receiving, repacking storing and shipping limes, mangoes, avocados and pineapples, all imported from Mexico. Individual cold rooms are provided and specifically controlled to protect each fruit’s needs throughout the ripening process.

The company submitted to the Primus Labs certification process as a part of it continuous program of process improvement to improve food quality and safety results. At the same time this decision was taken, the company elected to install Airocide bioconversion systems to ensure the best possible result.

Today London Fruit uses the fact that they are Airocide bioconversion equipped along with their Audit Certification from Primus as key marketing tools to their expanding customer base.
