Competition in the fruit and vegetable industry grows stronger every day. That is why the preservation of freshness during transport and the timing of ripening in the destination market are key elements of success in the fruit and vegetable industry. Sam of Shandong AWT Bio-tech introduced their solution to these problems--FYK Ripening packets.
Bananas, mangoes, papayas, and avocados easily spoil. They have high demands when it comes to preservation and ripening. "Fruit often has to travel post-harvest to processing facilities where they are artificially ripened in ripening chambers before they enter the market. However, because of market competition or limited investment, fruit retailers in many countries are unable to use ripening chambers on time or at all. They can only wait for the fruit to ripen naturally. In addition, because the market shrank during the pandemic, the expansion of fruit sales volumes is uncertain. If too much fruit is ripened in a ripening chamber, then perhaps supply will exceed demand, and that will create waste. Shandong AWT Bio-tech researched and developed a solution for this problem. They produced the FYK ripening packet that is easy to use."
When asked about the advantages of FYK ripening packets, Sam explained, "this ripening packet can turn ordinary fruit boxes into ripening chambers that do not require additional air-conditioning installations. The packets can easily be added to the fruit box any time and anywhere. The active element in FYK ripening packets is ethylene gas. This gas promotes the combination of RNA and proteins in the fruit cell, which speeds up the breathing process, and stimulates organic transformation. In other words, ethylene encourages the ripening process."
In addition, FYK ripening packets are easy to use. "The client can easily add the appropriate amount of packets to each box. The packets need to be moistened before they are added, and the box needs to be as sealed as possible. In only 2-3 days 2 FYK ripening packets can stimulate the ripening process in a 10kg box of mangoes. And when added to a box of bananas it only takes 3-4 days to prepare the bananas for the market. FYK ripening packets are easy to use, leave no residue, and are environmentally friendly. And they can efficiently raise the product quality of food products," said Sam.
"FYK ripening packets are highly efficient when used with tropical fruits such as bananas, mangoes, papayas, and avocadoes, but work equally well on non-tropical fruits such as apricots. The fruit does not require manual inspection after the ripening process is completed. They will have reached the appropriate level of ripeness, and maintain moisture, flavor, and nutrients. In fact, we have discovered that FYK ripening packets closely follow the natural ripening process, but shorten the ripening period and improve the product quality," said Sam.
Shandong AWT Bio-tech works hard to provide suitable solutions for ripening needs in the global fruit and vegetable industry. "The FYK ripening packet is one of the products we have researched and developed in our own company. This product meets national code GB 9830-88 and is patented. Our sales volumes in India, Pakistan, Thailand, Vietnam, and Mexico are rapidly growing."
