The apple production season in the northern hemisphere has just started, but many production areas are facing big challenges. Producing areas such as Germany and Poland had to increase product prices due to rising labor and agricultural materials costs. Even so, many exporters are still optimistic about the new apple season.
Debby from SPM Biosciences(Beijing) Inc, a post-harvest preservation service provider for fruits and vegetables, introduced the application and advantages of the company's ANGEL FRESH products suitable for apple storage and preservation.
According to Debby, the use of 1-MCP in apple cold storage for preservation has been widely used in major apple-producing areas around the world. "1-MCP is an efficient post-harvest preservation product for apples, which can effectively prolong the storage time of apples, effectively avoid the problems of apple dehydration, reduced hardness, and poor taste caused by delays in shipping schedules, and extend the shelf life." Debby said.
"Both storage companies and exporters can use it. If it can be used together with low temperature, air-conditioning and other fresh-keeping technologies, it can achieve better freshness of fruits and vegetables. Using 1-MCP in cold storage can extend the shelf life of fruits and vegetables by 50%-200%.”
In addition to powder products used in cold storage, some exporters have begun to use preservatives in transportation. "Many importers and exporters have asked about our Angel Fresh sachets and cards. The application is very simple and convenient, as long as the products are placed in the fruit packages," Debby said. "We can also provide customers with customized fresh-keeping solutions according to different packaging and scenarios. Our sachets and cards can also provide customized services, and customers can print their own logos."
SPM Biosciences(Beijing) has nearly ten years of experience in the Chinese local market. When talking about the advantages of the company, Debby said, "We have our own R&D, analysis and service teams, and have obtained sales qualifications in countries such as Argentina and Dominica. We are currently looking for sales agents in other regions. In addition to the existing variety of products, we hope to cooperate with more fruit and vegetable wholesalers, exporters, packers and agents to contribute to reducing the loss of fruits and vegetables in the supply chain. For new customers, we can also provide free samples for testing."
