BERRYGUARD™ BLUEBERRY PACKAGING TECHNOLOGY / PALLET
Berry Guard™ is an innovative packaging system developed by OSKU and validated by Davis, University of California and important Chilean Blueberry Export Companies.
The system comprises a pallet-cover bag controlling the relative humidity and 5 bands of pads releasing Sulfur Dioxide (SO2) which together effectively control the development of Botrytis Cinerea on blueberries. The product allows extended times of transit and/or storage.
Berry Guard™ pads are devices that are composed of laminated covered polymers which stably control the SO2 emission by applying very low dosis of gas to the fruit with the purpose of stopping the action of Botrytis Cinerea.
- Botrytis Cinerea Fungus Control.
- Diminished loss of weight on the blueberry, keeping the relative humidity stable in a range of 88-95%.
- Sanitizes superficial wounds and microcracks in the fruit, keeping its optimum condition.
- Operatively easy and quickly to mount avoiding temperature breaks.
