BrimaPack has released two time-lapse videos to show the extended shelf life of Broccoli and Cauliflower
BRIMAPACK has developed the “NicePack” packing systems giving superior shelf life and lower packing costs compared to other technologies. The BrimaFilm AF has been exclusively developed to increase the shelf life of broccoli and other brassicas such as cauliflower and cabbage. The extension of the shelf life is at least 5 – 8 days (at 17 degrees centigrade). This is reached in a natural way by creating an optimal atmosphere for the brassicas storage and display. The combination of the VePack 200-P machines with the BrimaFilm AF gives this extended shelf life.
