Jill Ambler - Tessara

"We are introducing our new products into various countries"

Tessara has exhibited at Asia Fruit Logistica numerous times and is excited about the upcoming trade show in Bangkok. "We are introducing our new products into various countries, and AFL is a brilliant platform to continue this. In addition, it is a three-day event to connect face-to-face with our valuable end-users, customers and friends from around the world and meet new ones too." says Gill Ambler, Sales and Technical Manager in Australia. 

Tessara manufactures sulphur dioxide laminated sheets (sulphur pads), the company specialises in fresh science by providing post-harvest solutions that maximise the shelf life of valuable fresh produce to minimise food waste. 

"We are proud to introduce two new products at AFL Bangkok. A fully recyclable sulphur pad for table grapes called Uvays Vivo and Berrisys, for the blueberry industry, which extends the shelf life of blueberries during storage and transportation. Both products are available and used in South Africa and the UK, with Turkey and Georgia following suit. In Australia, the APVMA registration for Berrisys is pending for December 2022. We eagerly await this approval to assist the Australian industry with their exports and domestic market opportunities."

Tessara's production facility is BRC accredited with an AA rating and operates 24/7, 5 to 7 days a week. They have approximately 200 staff, including representatives and agents in key markets in Asia, Africa, Europe, Australia, and North and South America. Tessara offers an innovative range of products that increases the shelf life during post-harvest storage and transportation. 

"Our sulphur dioxide laminated sheets are scientifically designed for individual crops: table grapes, blueberries, raspberries, blackberries and cut flowers. All our products are for post-harvest application; they sterilise the fruit and destroy fungal pathogens, mainly Botrytis cinerea, a common cause of post-harvest rot during storage. Our focus is about keeping fresh produce fresher for longer" 

Tessara's range of products includes UVASYS and UVASYS VIVO, the fully recyclable sulphur pad for table grapes. In addition, BERRISYS and BERRISYS LITE are for berries - blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, and FLORASYS- for cut flowers. 

"A smart change in your post-harvest system can significantly affect your valuable crop's shelf life. We enjoy discussing everything post-harvest to maximise shelf life. 

CEO Jaco Smit will be with the Tessara team at the Tessara booth E-54.
