Companies that market bell peppers have great difficulty minimizing losses, which affects their profitability. On the one hand, they must deal with rot issues at the source, which means they already experience high losses during the sorting process.
In addition, they have enormous losses at the destination due to botrytis, so they must deal with many important customer claims.
Finally, weight loss and dehydration of the fruit are major drawbacks to improving the sector's profitability.
"Historically, there's been no product to improve the pepper's shelf life. We have now been able to bring the first solution to the market," stated Javier Biel, the manager of Sanifruit.
SaniPepper is a residue-free solution specifically for peppers, which helps extend their shelf life throughout the value chain. "Many companies from Murcia and Almeria are already using it with very good results," he stated.
"SaniPepper reduces product loss and claims, thus increasing the profitability of the companies. In addition, it is a 100% natural treatment made from vegetable extracts. It has CAEE certification and is suitable for organic products," stated Javier Biel On.
It is applied in the processing line by spraying it on the peppers with equipment designed and installed by Sanifruit technicians that guarantees accuracy in the dose and effectiveness in the results.
"The product does not generate spills that need to be treated later, reducing the risk of potential problems. In addition, it is easily soluble, has a high density, and is easy to clean on the production line. We are proud to say that we have succeeded in reducing the use of chemical products on a product that people normally eat without peeling and often without washing," concluded Sanifruit's manager.
