State-of-the-art ripening systems and heat exchangers


INTERKO is the Global leader for the design, manufacture and installation of state-of-the-art ripening systems for fresh fruit. Founded over 50 years ago, Interko develops reliable systems that are built to last. Since its creation, the company has installed over 5,000 ripening rooms for bananas, avocados, mangoes and papayas, the earliest of which are still in operation and performing well today. Nowadays we install about 200 rooms per year.

State-of-the-art systems

Interko offers everything from a plug-and-play ripening solution in a basic room to high-end, multi-layer ripening rooms for big distribution centres used by established retailers, distributors and importers.

We are proud to provide custom-made solutions to ripen just a few boxes of bananas in the smallest room to as many as 96 pallets in a large room and everything in between. Our ULTIMO ripening room ensures maximum efficiency for heterogeneous ripening. For precision ripening and maximum flexibility we offer the random access AXESSO room. Our systems are standard equipped with Interko REVERSO fans designed to ripen at full and reversible air flow with minimal energy usage. 

Simple solutions

Interko has a well-earned reputation for quality ripening at attractive overall costs and the development of systems that require only minimal maintenance. Clear instructions mean that the systems can be up and running quickly. Gassing systems and gas-tight doors can be delivered as part of the package. Installation can be coordinated by one of our local partners. Assembly can also be arranged. By choosing Interko you benefit from premium fruit quality, a longer shelflife, minimal product losses and lower operational costs.
