CAS technology to be used in Vietnam to conserve lychees

In order to ensure the quality of lychees exported to Japan, the Minister of Science and Technology is planning to build a factory that uses CAS technology (Cells Alive System) to preserve lychees from the Luc Ngan district in the province of Bac Giang.

CAS is a technique that freezes to at least -35°C, does not destroy production cells and allows the fruit to maintain it’s freshness and flavour. On the contrary to normal freezing methods, the treated products are as good as when fresh. Norio Owada, Director of Japanese company ABI says that CAS technology can be used on lychees as well as other fruit and vegetables destined for export from Vietnam.

“If Japan continues to authorises the lychee imports, Vietnam will centralise the production zones in order to produce lychees that are better suited to the quality norms required. We are planning to build a factory using CAS technology to preserve lychees in the Luc Ngan district, of Bac Giang province, and we would like to make the most of ABI’s active support to do so” declared the Minister of Science and Tecnhology, Nguyen Quan.
