Extending

SHELF
LIFE
Post-pandemic,
technology
more important
than ever

THE SUPPLY CHAIN DISRUPTIONS caused by the coronavirus
pandemic drove home the need to find new ways to help keep foods -
perishable foods in particular - fresh and safe.
One of the best ways to do that with fresh fruits and vegetables? Shelf
life-extending technology.
This spring, Vancouver, Canada-based Oppy completed a trial of a
new shelf life extension technology created by Chicago-based Hazel
Technologies Inc.
The object: greener and more turgid stems of grapes, with no signs
of shriveling, and to maintain superior storage life under transit and
warehouse conditions.

Garland Perkins, Oppy's senior manager for innovation and insight,
said the company is still conducting several trials with Hazel Tech -
and other shelf life-extending specialists -and is seeing considerable
interest from retailers and others in the market for practical and
effective shelf life extension solutions.
"The positive reaction reflects the importance of reducing food waste
and spoilage to the industry as a whole, as well as delivering even better
quality fruit to retailers and consumers," Perkins said. "Ultimately, there
has to be a business reason for deploying the technology, meaning we
go after problems to solve, rather than try to force the technology when
there really isn't an obvious opportunity."

It opens up the possibility of bringing new products to the
North American market that otherwise might not have been
feasible - products, for instance, that are typically too fragile
to survive the transit time."
