Longer shelf life and reduced food waste are achieved with PerfoTecO2Control
The ultimate gas flushing system allows fresh produce packers to reach the required level of modified atmosphere in their packaging instantly and consistently. An optimum mixture of CO2, oxygen and nitrogen is adapted to the individual respiration requirements of the respective fruit and vegetable product.
