"Expanding our offering into many additional crops is going to bring tremendous opportunity to fruit and vegetable growers around the U.S.,” said Gordon Robertson, CEO of Verdant Technologies. “We are confident in the value our technology delivers across a wide range of commodities and we look forward to partnering with customers to provide an effective post-harvest solution to keep their produce fresher for longer.”

HarvestHold Fresh is a shelf-life extension solution providing a simple and flexible post-harvest delivery method. Through its delivery method of industry-standard 1-methylcyclopropene (1-MCP), HarvestHold Fresh significantly reduces waste in the perishable produce supply chain and offers storability and portability.

Verdant Technologies has received U.S. state approvals for HarvestHold Fresh in 49 states, with the anticipation of approval in California by late 2022.
