A producer of chilled, fresh cut fruit and vegetables wants to improve its production process with the objective:

  • shelf life extension.
  • improvement of the quality at the end of shelf life.

Numerous parties claim to be able to extend the shelf life of packed produce by the application of technical processing aids, packaging film and / or modified air. Customers ask for products with lower microbial counts. The quality manager wonders how to achieve that target at minimal costs.

Fresh, Food & Factory helps by optimisation of the production process and improvement of the packaging design. The shelf life of products can thus by extended by two days.
