Janssen postharvest products assure quality of fresh produce from harvest to home

JANSSEN PMP postharvest products provide effective protection. Applying effective protection along the food chain enables suppliers to meet the more stringent demands from retailers for freshness and quality at the point of delivery. Moreover, preventing spoilage means more fresh produce reaches the consumer, reducing waste and making more efficient use of energy for transportation and refrigeration.

Protection begins in the packinghouse with protective washing solutions and continues through cold storage and refrigerated transport helping to ensure cells and containers are free of spores and spoilage organisms. Extensive trials and experience enable us to recommend dosage levels that are as low as possible, but sufficient enough to adequately protect the fruits.

Treated fruits are better able to withstand the temperature variations that can occur as they are moved from one stage to the next along the value chain. The protection from the original washing solutions remains effective as the fresh fruits are warehoused and distributed to their point of sale, extending shelf life, preserving freshness and nutritional value into the kitchen for final preparation.
