PerfoTec is dedicated to reducing food waste

In the chain, over 40% of all fresh produce is thrown away. This is a thorn in the side for all parties, and the question is: who takes the lead to reduce this waste? PerfoTec from Mijdrecht came up with a solution to improve shelf life of fresh fruit and vegetables. "By reducing the oxygen levels in the packaging, we put the product to sleep, as it were." 

Together with TOP BV, PerfoTec developed the respiration meter. PerfoTec's unique technology to improve shelf life was born.
