TransFresh Lime Solutions

TransFresh Controlled Atmosphere Systems Maintain Quality and Freshness.

The rate of respiration is reduced in Controlled Atmosphere, which:
  • Tectrol® Controlled Atmosphere dramatically reduces the loss of green color on fruit skin. Incidence of decay and oleocelosos is reduced.
  • Firmness retention is retained above normal refrigeration.
  • Fruit has less weight loss, providing a fresher appearance.
  • Higher maturities can be shipped, allowing more fruit volume available at origin, and higher juice content in fruit at destination.

Profits are Maximized at Distribution and Retail
  • Less shrink means more marketable fruit, and increased profits.
  • TransFresh Controlled Atmosphere lime quality is comparable to air freight arrivals.

Product Shelf Life is Improved
  • Better arrival quality extends marketability by several days.
  • Rind color is retained 30-50% longer then under refrigeration alone.
