Hazel Technologies partners with FLP of Peru SAC

"Testing showed a shelf-life extension for Kent Mango by more than 21 days"

Hazel Technologies Inc. announced a new partnership with FLP of Peru SAC, a mango exporter in Peru. The partnership focuses on the use of Hazel™ for Mango in the coming 2020-2021 season following nearly one year of trials. 

Hazel™ for Mango is a small sachet placed in a carton of mango which reduces the respiration rate and ethylene sensitivity of the fruit, extending shelf-life and reducing food waste. For Peruvian exporters sending mango to demanding markets in Asia, Europe, and North America, post-harvest quality and shelf-life have critical importance.

FLP of Peru, founded in 2000, is part of the FLP group of companies with additional headquarters in Colombia and Ecuador and founded by Néstor and Camilo Gutiérrez in 1986. FLP of Peru employs over 2,500 people, and primarily focuses on providing Kent Mango to demanding markets such as The Netherlands, Germany, Spain, and France.

“In our testing with Hazel™ for Mango last season we observed significant results, extending Kent Mango shelf life by more than 21 days,” commented Alberto Irazola, Manager at FLP Peru. “In order to stay competitive in the global market, the highest quality is necessary. Hazel™ for Mango is an easy to use solution that helps us accomplish our highest quality standards.”

“Mango is one of the most consumed fruits in the world, and production is growing at an unprecedented rate in Peru,” commented Aidan Mouat, CEO, Hazel Technologies “Our partnership with FLP symbolizes our commitment to reduce food waste on a global scale beyond North America.”

“Peru has grown quickly to become the 3rd largest exporter of mango in the world. Hazel Tech’s easy to use solution allows both the largest exporters like FLP and also small family farms in Peru to extend shelf life, increase sales, and reduce food waste,” said Martin Roeder, LATAM Sales Manager, Hazel Technologies, Inc.
