Given the perishability of many produce items, opportunities to extend shelf life are highly desirable. Join us April 20 for our webinar, Optimizing Produce Quality & Shelf Life: Approaches and Experiences, to explore the factors that affect shelf life, and the tools available to optimize product. Also, you’ll learn the approaches that produce companies took to solve specific perishability issues. https://hubs.li/H0KHKhF0

New services of the QFresh Lab
We have recently purchased a tabletop lidding machine, the T100 from MULTIVAC.
This equipment expands our capabilities and allows us to perform lidded clamshell shelf-life tests on your produce with a perforation pattern designed to optimize shelf-life. This machinery also allows for us to utilize active modified atmosphere, where we can gas flush the clamshell at time of pack to extend shelf-life of sensitive items.
We are excited about these new capabilities and the opportunity to improve quality for our customers.
