Food waste is high on the agenda in the western world as over 40% of fresh food is discarded. Fruit and vegetables are in the top 5 of the most wasted products. This is a concern that touches upon everybody.

PerfoTec and TOP b.v. have developed a technology to extend the shelf life of fresh fruit and vegetables. By measuring the respiration rate of fruit and vegetables and adjusting the packaging accordingly, the shelf life of fruit and vegetables can be extended significantly. A pilot at commercial scale with Marks & Spencer in the UK showed a reduction in waste of almost 50% and a significant increase in sales due to better product quality.

  18. 18. Factors affecting the respiration rate: Internal: • Type of tissue or organ : Leaves > fruits > roots. • Product size : bigger size < respiration rate. • Stages of development : young leaves > respiration. In fruits will depend on their classification as climacteric or non-climacteric.
  19. 19. Factors affecting the respiration rate: External: • Mechanical damage and product’s sanitary condition. • Temperature of external environment. • Atmosphere composition (< Oxygen and CO2 < respiration; > ethylene > respiration). • Physical barriers (waxes, plastic films, etc.)
