"We have been a strategic partner for citrus exporting companies for 35 years"

Post-harvest preservation is a challenge for the citrus industry. The fruit's freshness, appearance and quality will determine its final market value. Citrus exporters require post-harvest solutions that can help them extend the shelf life of their fruit, reduce losses and increase their profitability.

"We have been listening to their needs for more than 35 years and that is why we have been developing natural, innovative solutions in this sector, which is markedly traditional in terms of post-harvest treatments," says a representative of the Valencian company Sanifruit.

One of the most significant challenges in citrus post-harvest is dehydration, which can lead to considerable losses. "The application of our organic solutions for citrus fruits helps create a protective barrier that reduces water loss and helps preserve the fruit's freshness and weight. This not only increases profitability by preventing losses, but also reduces the amount of customer complaints, ensuring that the quality of the product stays the same from the harvest until it is purchased by the end consumer."

Citrus fruits are susceptible to oxidation, especially through wounds and cold damage. "At Sanifruit, we have developed solutions that delay this oxidative process, protecting the fruit from external damage. By minimizing oxidation, citrus fruits preserve their appearance and quality for longer, which is crucial during storage and transport," they say.

The shelf life of citrus fruits is a decisive factor in their market value. Sanifruit claims that the application of its solutions not only improves the appearance of the fruit, but also ensures the preservation of its firmness and freshness throughout the packing and marketing process. "This allows growers and distributors to offer an optimal product for longer, so their competitiveness also improves."

Given the increasingly stricter regulations in many global markets, it is essential to reduce the use of active ingredients in post-harvest treatments. "Our solutions comply with these regulations, allowing growers to access more restrictive markets without the quality of their products being compromised. This opens up new trade opportunities and increases export potential," they say.

Fungal contamination, including Geotrichum infections and other external agents, can cause significant post-harvest losses in citrus. "Our solutions include antifungal agents that protect the fruit from such contaminations, ensuring that citrus fruits reach the consumer in perfect condition. This protection is vital to preserve the product's health and ensure customer satisfaction."

"We are a strategic ally for citrus exporting companies, to whom we also offer close technical advice to help them apply our solutions in the most optimal way. We also have teams exclusively devoted to applying our solutions, so we are providing a comprehensive service to companies in the sector," they say.
