Fisher Ranch expands its business using AgroFresh’s flagship technology to deliver high quality melons
US based AgroFresh Solutions, Inc., a global leader in produce freshness solutions, and family-owned grower and shipper Fisher Ranch recently partnered to deliver ready-to-eat, ripe melons from California to global markets using SmartFresh™ technology.
With the use of SmartFresh technology, California-based Fisher Ranch has created new business opportunities by extending the storage window and gaining improved inventory flexibility.
The grower reported excellent freshness results using SmartFresh™ SmartTabs™ on cantaloupes and Golden Dewlicious™ honeydew melons.
According to Fisher Ranch, AgroFresh’s industry-trusted post-harvest solution enables melons to ripen on the vine, allowing the fruit to retain great firmness and sugar content despite longer transit time.
SmartFresh SmartTabs helps growers and shippers maintain fresh and firm fruit during transit, which results in longer retail shelf life. SmartFresh has also been proven to help control skin disorders on melons for 26 days in cold storage.
SmartFresh SmartTabs is a convenient, easy-to-use solution for transport containers and small storage rooms. There’s no need to manually insert sachets in each box of produce.
SmartFresh technology empowers growers, packers and retailers from around the world to preserve quality and freshness for a wide range of crops including: apple, pear, avocado, banana, melon, tomato, broccoli, mango, peach, nectarine, plum, persimmon, kiwifruit, lime* and watermelon.
