Hefestus SLB shelf life booster

Tuesday, 02 March, 2010 | Supplied by: Goldtec Control Systems Pty Ltd



Hefestus has developed the SLB shelf life booster, a concept for fruit and vegetable packaging with modified atmosphere (MAP) technology that is claimed will provide a comprehensive solution for extended shelf life of fruits, vegetables and fresh-cut salads.

The major obstacle of purchasing ready-to-eat fresh-cut fruits and vegetables is their short shelf life, leading to quick degeneration and decomposition of the product and undesirable look and negative palatability.

SLB technology overcomes this challenge by providing extended shelf life and reducing accumulation of product decomposition liquids in the packaging bottom. SLB technology enables processors to pack fresh-cut fruit and vegetables and extend their shelf life up to fourteen days. This system allows manufacturers and marketers to transport fresh-cut products to distant destinations and can revolutionise the entire supply chain, from manufacturer to consumer, via fewer returns or discards, lower cost, reduced impact on the environment and satisfied consumers.
