World first cost-effective ethylene detection allowing you to accurately forecast
the ripeness of fresh produce, receive real-time reports & alerts and automate ethylene
cleaners & other FoodTech systems within your facilities.
How it works
As the world struggles with overwhelming food wastage, PostHarvest has
developed a patented technology to help proactively deal with the problem,
in the form of an atmosphere reader.
What's at stake?
Agribusiness is one of the largest industries in the world, valued at approximately $US 1.4 trillion a year. While this figure is astounding, there is an ever-expanding percentage of food loss & wastage year-in-year-out.
The main contributor to food waste is fruits and vegetables with a staggering 45% of all post-harvest produce being lost or wasted within the food supply chain. This is roughly 1.3 billion tonnes of food, which equates to $US 680 billion dollars worth of wasted produce not reaching an end consumer each year.

“This is a really innovative product that has the potential to have a significant impact on food waste, locally and globally. The real-time nature of the product and its ability to provide information to multiple points in the supply chain, in parallel with its accuracy, are really prominent features. ”
Atmospheric readings that measure down to 1PPB allow for accurate forecasting across all forms of fresh produce. This ensures that you can optimise your supplies, sending them out on time, every-time.
Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) and over-ripened produce take less than 2 hours to have irreversible effects on the surrounding batch. PostHarvest’s Environmental Sensor now provides cool room operators with an informed window of opportunity to act upon, proactively stopping large losses in product.
Real-time level reporting allows PostHarvest to know the perfect conditions and timing for your fresh produce shipments. Link your PostHarvest unit into your ethylene management systems in order to automate the entire process of caring for your stock.
The accurate history of each shipment’s journey ensures that we can replicate the best cold chain practices as we learn from every batch, every-time.
