Time is on your side
The optimum moment to sell your fruit is limited. On one hand your produce has to be of high quality. On the other, too much supply to the market in a short time frame will push down prices, cutting into already tight margins and may limit availability to consumers in other periods.
FYSIUM® provides that essential link in the fruit-quality value chain, resulting in fruit that is just as fresh, firm and juicy at the end of a long storage period as it was when it was harvested. Time is on your side.
How we do it
FYSIUM® offers a widely available 1-MCP solution that benefits both packers and consumers.
FYSIUM® is an in situ generation system in which 1-MCP is produced on site guaranteeing delivery of the right dose at the right time.
Ethylene is a small molecule that triggers the ageing process in fruit when it finds a free ethylene receptor (a protein embedded in the membrane of the fruit cells).
1-MCP takes the place of ethylene on the ethylene receptor. But it does not trigger the subsequent biochemical signalling cascade, thus delaying the fruit's ripening. The end result is a longer sales window for high-quality produce. And customers around the world get the best quality, when they want it, for the right price.
