Ethylene-absorbing label extends shelf-life of packaged fruit and vegetable

Ethylene-absorbing label extends shelf-life of packaged fruit and vegetable
Issue Time:2013-11-09
A new ethylene-absorbing patch could help extend the shelf-life of packaged fruit and vegetables – and help producers gain access to markets further. Innovative food packaging development company Sirane has launched a cost-effective new ‘patch’ which traps the ethylene, and so slows down the degradation process. The Dri-Fresh® Fresh-Hold? EA labels are a small patch – which can be almost hidden if need be – that attracts and absorbs the ethylene release by the produce within.
Many fruit and vegetables naturally produce ethylene, and unfortunately allowing that ethylene to remain within the packaging will speed up the ‘ageing-process’ and ultimately cause a quicker rate of degradation. The labels are a simple, very effective - and cost-effective - solution to the problems caused by ethylene within fresh produce packaging. 
Produce that produces a lot of ethylene includes apricots, avocados, bananas, melons, kiwi fruits, mangoes, nectarines, papaya, peaches, pears, plums and tomatoes. The odour-absorbing patch can easily be integrated with any type of packaging – be it pads, bags, films or cartons/trays – and can be customised to meet specific requirements. It is available in a number of formats, including reel format for easy application.
