Cost-effective ethylene detection allowing you to accurately forecast
ripeness of produce, receive real-time alerts and automate ethylene
cleaners & other FoodTech systems.
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.
The Benefits of PostHarvest
PostHarvest’s real-time sensor detects ethylene levels down to Parts Per
Billion (PPB), allowing cool store operators to:
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.
