Food tech innovation company SAVRpak’s moisture control technology, which can extend the shelf life of produce up to three times, will be marketed through Jüsto, Mexico’s first online supermarket.
Beginning in December, each clamshell of berry varieties ordered through Jüsto will include SAVRpak, a small, plant-based thermodynamic pouch that removes condensation.
The SAVRpak patch solution is placed in produce packaging before the product is sealed; within seconds, SAVRpak’s Atmospheric Control and Transmission technology removes 50% of condensation and keeps more from forming by absorbing the moisture that leads to sogginess and harmful microbial bacteria.
While online and delivery grocery orders increased by about 50% in North America, Jüsto is one example of the emerging food and product delivery sector in Latin America. Mexico’s first 100% online and vertically integrated supermarket, Jüsto works directly with fresh fruit and vegetable suppliers to offer shoppers the freshest available produce.
In preliminary trials, SAVRpak has proven to extend the shelf life of berries including raspberries by four to five days or more and strawberries by four days or more.
