“We are delighted to be able to tackle an area of food conservation that has not been achieved so far, and that is our ability to extend the life of unpeeled products,” said SAVRpak CEO. Grant Stafford. “Based on our success in the field of food service distribution, we have successfully transformed core technology to address a category that has no solution to maintaining food freshness for a long time, while reducing food waste – the main culprit for greenhouse gas emissions.”
The solution for producing Drop-In SAVRs will first be rolled out in the US Latin America with berry suppliers who have conducted successful trials that demonstrate the effectiveness of technology to extend product life. Trials were held Divine Flavor for table grapes, RCG Fruits for blackberries, Agrovision for blackberries, blueberries and raspberries, Agrizar cucumbers and Ocati gold. A restaurant technology company from the Colombian farm has also successfully tested SAVRpak’s thermodynamic technology in order to maintain the freshness of the products it sends to restaurants. Latin America.
“The most amazing result was the berry tests we did with SAVRpak,” said RCG Fruits CEO. Fernando Garibay. “Blackberries, in particular, are very delicate and often suffer from post-harvest redness and other changes in visual appearance and taste, which reduces the market and creates waste. This is a challenge that the industry has not been able to solve, but SAVRpak has proven The beautiful color of the berry has kept it intact and fresh for a long time, while maintaining the quality of our customers. “
In preliminary tests, SAVRpak showed that the golden berry lasts more than 10 days, the blackberries more than 7 days, the raspberries more than 4-5 days and the strawberries more than 4 days. Also in a 2021 lab test University of California, DavisLettuce stored with SAVRpak had significantly lower condensation and moisture in the bags, and had lower water soaking, decay, and wilting scores compared to control samples. UC Davis also found that SAVRpak reduced the number of bacteria found in lettuce in all storage protocols and on all assessment days compared to control samples.
In addition to fresh produce, SAVR has been fighting for food waste and maintaining the freshness of hot food with the launch of its flagship product in 2021. He made the same innovative technology for the first time in his take-away and delivery of foods such as chips, pizza and burgers. , which are often cold and wet on the way home from the restaurant. Restaurants in the U.S. and 21 countries have turned to SAVRpak to integrate their solution to address the root cause of poor food delivery. With Sysco, a global leader in the distribution of products for the food service industry – Sysco – is expanding its footprint by bringing its technology to independent and regional restaurant chains nationwide.
Similar to production, condensation is if there is too much time in a container because the food is spoiled. SAVRpak eliminates moisture that builds up from the restaurant to the home and preserves food so that it is not spoiled during transportation. Currently, the ability to extend the life of SAVRpak maintains food quality for a longer period of time in food and products to be transported, but it has major implications for the reduction of food waste due to long sales times.
SAVRpa is a leading food technology solution that aims to eliminate the # 1 enemy of food: condensation. SAVRpak’s Peel and Stick pad and Drop-In bag changes the environment inside a food container, removes moisture, and creates an environment for storing food freshness and “intentional” condition. Fast Company World Changing Idea was named a finalist in 2022 and the best invention of TIME magazine in 2021, SAVRpa can be carried to 41 states, 21 countries and hundreds of restaurants in the area. United States of America. SAVRs are 100% chemical-free, food-safe, disposable and made from degradable plant materials. More information here www.savrpak.com.
