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.

To combat this industry problem, PostHarvest have created the most accurate real-time ripening sensor in the world, to help monitor the health of fresh produce shipments within supply chain storage.

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.

Mag Highly sensitive detection

PostHarvest technology cost-effectively detects extremely low levels of gas in the atmosphere, as a way of tracking fresh produce quality as it is moved through the supply chain.

Graph-1 Immediate data collection

PostHarvest's device collects atmospheric data on a regular cycle, providing highly accurate predictions of ripening timelines; without ever having to handle the product.

Caut Real-time notifications

PostHarvest's software has the ability to collect any and all data from the Environmental Sensor's reads and then forward that data on to subscribers in the form of real-time notifications.

The Benefits of PostHarvest

PostHarvest's real-time sensor detects ethylene levels down to Parts Per Billion (PPB), allowing cool store operators to:


Accurately Forecast

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.


Most accurate ripeness/ethylene detection system in the world


Measurements down to 1PPB to give long-term warnings


Real-time alerts of changes within the storage atmosphere


Real-Time Warnings

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.


24/7 measuring - taking readings on a regular cycle


Alerts and Notifications can be sent via SMS, Email or Desktop


Actionable data and suggested responses provided

Real-time reporting by RipeTime to know the perfect conditions and timing for fresh produce shipments


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.


Automate ethylene management systems


Cut down on human error & cost


Ensure steady & healthy growth from "Farm-to-Fork"
