AgroFresh Extends Portfolio of Solutions to Latin America; Narciso Vivot Comments
PHILADELPHIA, PA - A new registration approval and launch were recently announced by AgroFresh Solutions as the innovator is set to release its SmartFresh™ ProTabs in Brazil and Mexico.
“At AgroFresh, we are driven by a spirit of innovation, continually finding new ways to help our global customers meet an increasing consumer demand for higher-quality, fresher, and more sustainable produce,” said Narciso Vivot, Commercial Director, Latin America. “Through the expansion of this new simple, convenient application option to Brazil and Mexico, our customers can continue to rely on the SmartFresh Quality System to provide a consistent supply of sustainable, high-quality produce as well as help to fight against food loss and waste and minimize their environmental impact.”
This new application method has been added to the SmartFresh Quality system portfolio, extending the availability of AgroFresh’s leading SmartFresh ProTabs technology for growers and packers in these two countries. SmartFresh puts the ripening process on hold, noted the release, so that softening and over-ripening occur much more slowly during storage and transport, extending shelf-life.
By leveraging AgroFresh’s extensive regulatory expertise, the launch of this new product presentation in Brazil and Mexico allows growers to access the full portfolio of freshness solutions that are tailored to a variety of customer needs and operation sizes. SmartFresh ProTabs offers a unique delayed-release mode, suitable for service and for do-it-yourself applications. It is simpler to use and does not require generators or water to initiate it.
SmartFresh ProTabs is approved for use in apples for storage room treatments and is also approved for a wide variety of tropical crops, including mangos and avocados. They are easy to apply and handle, offering effective protection against internal and external threats to freshness, resulting in increased shelf-life and reduced levels of food loss and waste, continued the release.
The SmartFresh Quality System is used in over 25,000 fruit storage rooms worldwide. AgroFresh operates seven innovation centers on four continents in key fruit-growing regions and has introduced a full portfolio of post-harvest freshness solutions, services, and digital solutions that address the needs of growers and packers around the world.
