Fruit storage allows a flexible operation management to cope with adverse conditions (economic, production, climate, etc.) and gives longer access to consumers to enjoy their favorite fruits. To help you get quality produce in your postharvest operations, in DECCO we developed and implemented complete protocols to control problems during storage like, development of fungi, bacteria, and physiological disorders, such as spots, dehydration, among others. To have an optimum storage condition for your produce, we monitor the presence of gasses like ethylene, CO2, etc., as well as the temperature and quality along with tightness of the chamber.
