Catalytic Generators and Exp. Group LLC have worked together for over 10 years to provide customers with quality, evenly ripe, fresh produce.
Exp. Group guarantees the quality and safety of their products, with a commitment to achieve and surpass market requirements. The multinational group committed to working with Catalytic Generators. “Catalytic Generators is a company that takes ripening solutions to the next level,” stated Anthony Serafino, Vice President of Exp. Group.
Serafino continued, “My father (Emil) has been doing business with Catalytic Generators for a long time, and when he started Exp. Group, he felt it was the right move for our company to continue to be involved with a company like Catalytic Generators. They have vastly changed how we deliver our products. We are very meticulous in how we choose our vendors, and we believe a large company like ours should be involved with an industry leader.”
Catalytic Generators provides a safe, effective method for ethylene application. The company’s trusted and well-known ethylene generators provide consistent, non-pressurized ethylene in order to achieve even ripening and degreening. Exp. Group applies this ethylene to their bananas and plantains to produce a product that is uniformly ripened and ready to eat by customers.
Ethylene is a natural plant hormone and many fruits that are harvested mature and green will benefit from exposure to a small amount of this helpful compound. Ripening occurs naturally as a response to this exposure, for bananas, tomatoes, avocados and other fruit will release internal ethylene, which is the ripening trigger, regardless of whether ripening occurs on the plant or in a ripening room.
“Catalytic Generators’ products are reliable. In the world of produce timing is everything, as with ripening it is a 24-hour operation. We need equipment we can rely on and Catalytic Generators products never disappoint. We are always looking for Greg Akins and his team to keep on developing more innovative products,” said Serafino.
Serafino continued, “It is our job to make sure we have top equipment to deliver on the demands of our customers. Catalytic Generators fits those demands.”
