Ripening is a normal phase in the maturation process of fruits and vegetables. This unavoidable process brings significant losses to both farmers and consumers alike. To delay fruit or vegetable ripening will serve consumers of “fresh-from-the-garden” produce.
Vegetables and Fruits are either ethylene producers or absorbers, which is triggered at maturity level. Use of anti-ripening agent will absorber or convert ethylene gas and significantly extend shelf life of fresh produce.
