- Absorbent fruit pad technology uses antimicrobials to extend the shelf life of soft and delicate fruits.
- Sirane’s new Dri-Fresh ABV pads contain a blend of natural bio-flavonoids and organic acids which work together to naturally enhance the fruit’s own protective defence. Combined with the absorbency within the pad, they offer an outstanding level of protection, claims the company.
- The technology can be supplied as standard absorbent pads or incorporated into Dri-Fresh Soft-Hold pads – absorbent cushioned pads which prevent damage to soft-fruit during transportation. The technology is activated by moisture – functioning only when needed.
- Fruits that would potentially benefit from the new pads include all types of berries – strawberries, raspberries, blackberries and blueberries - as well as other fruits vulnerable to damage including tomatoes, apricots, kiwi fruit, nectarines and grapes.
