Ethylene ripening company to exhibit at Hort Connections Brisbane

From June 18-20, Hort Connections will take place in Brisbane, Australia. The show is organised by AUSVEG and PMA Australia-New Zealand and attracts attendees from Australia, New Zealand as well as Asia. Catalytic Generators’ Australia division will be exhibiting and is looking forward to the event. “It’s the trade show to attend in Australia and New Zealand,” says Greg Akins with Catalytic Generators. “It brings everyone who is involved in the fruit and vegetable industries together in one place,” added Leigh Cummin who heads up Catalytic’s Australia division. Last year, Hort Connections had its inaugural conference and trade show.

Safer ethylene method
“Two years ago, when the show was organised as PMA Fresh Connections, this show really helped us in getting our message out that a safer and easier method for ethylene application is available in Australia and New Zealand,” said Cummin. “Having a booth again this year will give us an opportunity to show that our ethylene ripening system is beneficial for not just bananas, but also mangoes, avocados, citrus, tomato greenhouses, and more.” In the booth, Catalytic will be promoting its centralised ripening system for large ripening facilities, as well as its portable Easy Ripe and the Citrus Generator for smaller facilities and farms. “No matter what size operation, our systems allow ripeners to produce ethylene on-site instead of storing large quantities of compressed ethylene in fresh produce warehouses,” said Akins. 

Catalytic Generators tapped into the Australian market a few years ago. “We saw opportunities to replace the more dangerous pressurised ethylene cylinders with our safer and easier alternative for ethylene,” said Cummin. “We have fully trained and authorised distribution from Melbourne to all points in Australia and New Zealand.”
