papayaUflex expanded its Flexfresh Liner Bags range for its project with Perfotec to maximise the shelf life of the tropical fruit papays.

According to Uflex, trials with Perfotec in India and Holland determined the possible shelf life extension.

A Fast Respiration Meter from Perfotec was used to determine the rate of respiration under the supply chain temperature of 10°C and determined the ideal oxygen and carbon dioxide inside the liner bags to maintain freshness and extend shelf life.

Ashok Chaturvedi, chairman and managing director, Uflex, said that the major benefit of using the Flexfresh Liner bags is the possibility of having an elevated carbon dioxide level which prevented yellowing of the fruit and maintained firmness to the fruit quality. He claimed that growers could attain a shelf life of 30 Days for Papaya using the Flexfresh Liner Bags.
