This is the time of the year when Peruvian blueberries enter the market in large volumes. Peru is the main supplier of blueberries to the Chinese market. And the Chinese import volume of Peruvian blueberries is expected to expand significantly this year. However, global shipping problems and strict customs procedures cause delays that can impact the quality of fruit.
Exporters struggle with the question how to keep their products fresh for longer under such challenging circumstances. Shandong AWT Bio-tech Co., Ltd. is a company specialized in the manufacturing and export of fresh-keeping products. Company spokesperson Wang recently talked about their Logfresh fresh-keeping pads for blueberry products.
Manager Wang first introduced how this fresh-keeping pad works. "Sulfur dioxide is a highly efficient chemical element in mold inhibitors. This method is already widely applied in fresh-keeping solutions for table grapes, but not commonly applied to keep blueberries fresh. Our Logfresh fresh-keeping pad makes use of sulfur dioxide to extend the shelf life of blueberries."
"We carried out an experiment in which we compared two sets of blueberry products kept at 2°C for 56 days. We added the Logfresh fresh-keeping pad to the blueberries on the left, while the blueberries on the right are packed in traditional packaging. The differences are clearly visible."
When asked about the advantages of this product, manager Wang replied: "Logfresh fresh-keeping pads release a stable amount of sulfur dioxide to keep the blueberries fresh. The stability of this product guarantees that the blueberries are exposed to an even and consistent amount of gas. In addition, the sulfur dioxide does not affect the color or flavor of the blueberries. And the blueberries stay fresh for 30% longer than untreated blueberries."
"Logfresh fresh-keeping pads have long been used to keep grapes fresh, but when the Chinese import volume of blueberries expanded, we received more and more inquiries from blueberry importers and exporters. That is why we began to experiment on the basis of Logfresh fresh-keeping pads for grapes. We improved our fresh-keeping technology and adjusted the concentration of sulfur dioxide. That is how we researched and developed our Logfresh fresh-keeping pad for blueberries," said manager Wang.
"Different fruit varieties have different requirements for fresh-keeping solutions, but so do different blueberry varieties from different production areas. That is why we offer customized fresh-keeping products on the basis of customer requirements. We started a conversation with our customers to better understand the product specifics and the customer requirements, and we designed a suitable solution."
