For the first time in Asian subcontinent, MWH Agrology India Pvt Ltd has tied up with the world's best food safety company "Bioconservacion" of Spain. The Spanish company is the world leader in ethylene absorption products that help growers, traders and exporters of fruits and vegetables preserve fresh life of their produce for longer periods of time.
Ethylene is a hormone produced by all fruits and vegetables in gas form. Ethylene kick starts the ripening process in fruits and vegetables. But if the ripening process is not regulated, these products over ripen and then rot.Absorption of ethylene gas coming out of fruits, vegetables and flowers is the only non-invasive method of regulating the ripening process and improving the fresh life of these produce.The natural clay based ethylene absorption media produced by Bioconservacion has the highest ethylene absorption capacity in the world. This product is sold in over 85 countries and is now introduced in India by MWH Agrology.
The technology is available in the form ofmachines for cold storage rooms, sachets weighing between 3 and 10 gmsto absorb ethylene from fruit cartons and boxes, filters for exporters sending their produce via ship containers and a machine designed for domestic refrigerators.
