Packaging requirements differ by customer and market segment. The fruit is packed in such a way as to offer proper protection for the produce, guaranteeing the required resistance and the conditions to be transported, always maintaining quality in our products. This exotic fruit is ripened on the tree, individually protected and transported by air to Europe, Asia and Canada.
For Europe and Asia boxes of 2.5 Kg are used, i.e. for air cargo, 150 boxes (1 industrial pallet) are shipped; which equates to 375 kg of fruit.
Also, developing packing using less natural resources and helps reduce the use of water, energy and the emission of gases that cause the greenhouse effect and the production of volatile organic compounds.
Sending granadilla by air cargo, it’s subject to a permanent process of continuous improvement, as well as updates on new packaging methodologies, bags with special coatings and the application of controlled atmospheres, to always guarantee the cold chain.
The conservation at 7–10ºC and 86% of relative humidity, delays the maturation process and prevents the excessive dehydration of the Granadilla, which allows an estimated useful life of 20 days.
