It has enabled Fresh Technologies to extend the freshness of avocado and reduce product spoilage by 7.2 tonne. A 90 day shelf life supports wider distribution and the 3% growth in global consumption. With consumers seeking preservative-free freshness, fressure™ avocado spreads and guacamole in Cryovac® Freshness Plus® deliver just this. Extended shelf life ensures less of our world’s hard earned harvests end up in landfill and this also includes the copious resources used during harvesting. With humanity consuming 1.6 times more resources than what’s available, extending the shelf life of food is pivotal for a sustainable and less wasteful planet.

present challenges for the fresh food/meal delivery sectors as contents must arrive fresh, with maximum nutrition but also be safe to consume. Woolcool keeps food packed at 1oC chilled below 5oC for at least 24hrs. Woolcool works by wool fibres absorbing moisture from the air and minimising humidity/condensation to create stable temperatures. When the wool is enclosed in a micro-perforated, recyclable, food grade liner the wool can ‘breathe’ and a natural cooling system results. As there is no odour, wool will not taint contents.

In our 5 layer film we used polyamide resin which gives barrier properties against moisture, oxygen, flavour & aroma & flavour permeation. These properties help food from spoilage and extend shelf life. Being a food packaging wrapper we use toluene free printing inks & solvent free lamination adhesive. Our product is also an import substitution as otherwise our customer has to import this laminate. This saves a lot of foreign exchange for the country.as it is avalable in Nigeria, our customers need not keep huge inventories and save money. More over its easy availabilty and reduces import hassels for our customers
