US: Improved packaging for fruit ripening product

Catalytic Generators has made improvements to their Ethy-Gen(r) II Ripening Concentrate by recently completing a sizable investment in packaging machinery that will fill their concentrate in coded and sealed containers. "Given the importance of food safety to the produce industry, we made a decision to insure that the integrity of our product is the best it can possibly be," said Greg Akins,President & CEO of the company. "Our goal is to be a proactive manufacturer and look for innovative ways to add value to our products."

By using an inductive sealing process on the bottles of Ethy-Gen(r) II, a hermetic, leak proof, and tamper evident seal is in place that will assure our customers that the contents haven't been tampered with and that the original purity remains unchanged. "The inductive seals will be familiar to many, as they are used to protect many products, from bottles of sauces, juices and other foods, as well as many medications."

"We chose a liner that is called "Lift 'n' Peel(tm)", which is the easiest to remove seal. Often times a product uses a liner that requires a knife to cut it," said Mr. Akins. "This one has a flexible and strong tab that lifts and enables the seal to be quickly removed."

The company has also invested in a lot coding process, which will place an identifying code on each bottle. Should a customer be involved in a recall of a ripened fruit product, Catalytic Generators could rapidly trace a complete history of the Ethy-Gen(r) II used to ripen the fruit, from manufacture date to bottle date.
