The Physalis Packaging requirements differ by customer and market segment. It is packed in each container in compliance with the Code of Practice for Packaging and Transport of Fresh Fruits and Vegetables (CXC 44-1995) and 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 the quality of the products.
For Europe boxes of 1,2 Kg are used, i.e. for air cargo, 150 boxes max. (1 euro pallets) are shipped; which equates to 180 kg of fruit.
Boxes with a capacity of 1,2 kg are used for exports to Europe and USA, i.e. for a 40-foot container, 5500 boxes (23 pallets) are shipped; which equates to 6600 kg of Physalis.
By the other hand, we develop 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.
The conservation at 8 – 10ºC and 85% of relative humidity, delays the maturation process and prevents the excessive dehydration of the Physalis, which allows an estimated useful life of 18 days.
Golden berries are grown whose progressive agricultural practices comply fully with US, Canadian, and European laws and regulations, packed, and shipped by air or sea.
