Advanced multi effect device to prevent fruit and vegetables ripening


SME Bolaseca has developed an energy-free consumption device that restrains fruit and vegetables ripening. This innovation can be used all along value chain, from crops recollection to final domestic consumer. Durafresh´s installation is simple and flexible; adaptable to any need depending on the current conditions of each user. An easy calculation will determine the number and size of devices required in each case. According to 2017 FAO´s report there is a 45% fruit and vegetable food losses. Along with roots and tubers, fruit and vegetables have the highest wastage rates of any food products; almost half of all the fruit and vegetables produced are wasted. Durafresh patented solution has very low investment barrier and lower cost maintenance as market standards, making it attractive for starting the use of it. This device has a high demonstrated performance so far, and meets EU consolidated (in 2017) recommendations on food waste field. Bolaseca pretends to enter the food market with its sound and demonstrated solution.
