FOOD freshly North America receives OMRI Certification

FOOD freshly North America, Inc. announced today that their freshness retainers for the shelf-life extension of fresh cut fruits and vegetables has been certified by the Organic Material Review Institute (OMRI). OMRI, a non-profit organization, reviews the suitability of substances for use in organic production, processing and handling of food.

Food freshly’s freshness retainers are natural products that maximize the shelf-life of fresh cut produce. The freshness retainers consist of a precise blend of permissible mineral materials, organic acids, and vitamins. These products prevent the fast decay of enzymatic browning, loss of firmness, structure, and taste in the very demanding value added industry.

Benjamin Singh, the President of FOOD freshly North America, Inc., commented, “We are very pleased to receive this certification. With the increasing demand for organic products comes an increasing demand for shelf-life stability. We were asked by our customers to come up with a solution that they can use on their organic products. It took longer than expected, nevertheless our solutions resulted in happy customers. Which in turn pleases us, for not only did we provide solutions to the fresh cut industry, but we were part of the process that supplies consumers with organic products that they deserve.”

“The fresh cut industry has a very difficult task. They have to work extra hard to provide fresh products to retailers, foodservice, and most importantly, the ever increasing demands of the consumer. With the pressure on them, comes the pressure on us, the responsibility to provide them with solutions that will work. They were in need of an organic product, and we were happy to deliver.” Margaret Tomaszewska, Account Executive FOOD freshly North America, Inc.

FOOD freshly North America Inc. along with our Mexican Distributors AERSA will be exhibiting at the Fresh Summit Produce Marketing Association (PMA) October 17- 19 held in Anaheim, California, USA. Booth #4215
