What? Fresh fruits and vegetables in mixed loads protected by Bi-On® ethylene scavenger sachets (Bioconservación, Barcelona, Spain).
Where? On the market. Shipments of unpredictable duration to remote communities in Northern Quebec.
More: The Bi-On® ethylene scavenger sachets get used in a wide variety of wholesale shipments. Bad weather in Northern Quebec mean the journey can be highly variable, and the loads are mixed produce, some ethylene producing and some ethylene sensitive, so using the ethylene scavengers has had a big effect to reduce losses and improve quality in these remote communities which don’t otherwise have reliable access to fresh produce.
