Biobased material, ideal water vapor transmission rate and CO2 permeability, for transport and storage of Fresh produce

How it works…

Blueberries in PerfoTec LinerBag

To prevent formation of water droplets, the PerfoTec LinerBag (MAP technology) is made of a special material with a high-water vapour permeability. This ensures that, without the product drying out, the water vapour is released through the bag. As a result, the product remains dry in the PerfoTec LinerBag with considerably less chance of mould and bacteria development.

Another special feature of the PerfoTec LinerBag is its high CO2 permeability. Thanks to this characteristic it is possible to achieve target low O2 levels, while preventing excessive build-up of CO2.

PerfoTec LinerBag BlueberriesBy maintaining the optimal MAP conditions and avoiding an anaerobic environment, longer shelf life is achieved.

Tests show that the combination of a healthy fresh product, at the optimal storage temperature and a product specific PerfoTec LinerBag, ensures freshness for a significantly longer period. This will reduce food waste and provide an opportunity to expand into new markets.

A few examples of fresh produce in combination with PerfoTec LinerBag and technology are Asparagus, Bell Peppers, Grapes, Blueberries and Pomegranates.
