We know that certain pear varieties, kept in the correct conditions could be stored for extensive periods of time. But if you always wanted to know what the limits of your produce are? What the softening rates are at different temperatures? What the best ripening recipes could be at the various stages of the growing season? How products react when certain transport conditions are simulated?
By subjecting your produce to various storage conditions you can find out. With a range of custom built climate rooms, we can carry out test on a small-scale before transferring these concepts to daily practice. The following parameters can be controlled in our climate rooms:
The information gathered during these tests will provide a completely different understanding of your products response.
- Non-destructive testing
- Dry matter analysis
- Texture & color
- Ethylene measurements (ppb & ppm)
- Pathogen analysis
