E-Coli Outbreak Could Cause Storage Problems for Fresh Produce Growers

Published:Β 13 Jun 2011



A drop in sales of fresh produce could cause a storage problem for growers stuck with more produce than they were expecting. 
 
In a scenario which Fresh Pod would be ideal at preventing, growers may lose produce which over ripens before they can get it to market. 
 
A Morrisons spokesman admitted to the Fresh Produce journal that they have seen a small drop in sales, whilst Ronny Liu a foodservice supplier added that some of their regular customers had cancelled orders. 
 
In each case a Fresh Pod commercial unit would assist the grower by allowing the produce to be kept fresher for up to four times as long, using purely natural, non-toxic ways to eliminate the storage environment of ethylene.
