PrimePro is a packaging technology designed to extend the shelf life of fresh fruits and vegetables. It extends shelf life by removing ethylene gas, a powerful plant hormone that triggers the process of ripening and decay.
How PrimePro Works
PrimePro is a polyethylene plastic film that contains a proprietary additive that is specially designed to remove ethylene from the air around fresh produce.
How PrimePro is Used
PrimePro is used to protect fresh produce from the packing house to the consumer’s fridge with a variety of products from pallet covers to retail bags.
What is Ethylene?
Ethylene (C2H4) is a plant hormone. Exposure to ethylene shortens the shelf life of fresh produce by speeding up the process of ripening and decay.
