Science not magic
Our RipeLocker containers offer a unique, patented system to precisely manage the atmosphere (oxygen, pressure, CO2 and humidity) within the containers to extend the life of perishables. The containers suppress pathogen growth, resulting in significantly less decay of fresh produce and flowers. In addition, RipeLocker containers provide a vehicle for delivering organic fungicide vapors to kill the pathogen.
Based on the specific needs of each type of fresh produce or flower, we tailor operating parameters (oxygen, pressure and CO2) to optimize the longevity and freshness. Our system responds to changes in the storage or shipping environment, making precise adjustments to prevent damage and reduce decay. We monitor all this for you remotely and in real time.
We designed RipeLocker containers so that they can easily be deployed and used in the existing cold chain. The container dimensions are designed to fill an ocean or truck reefer (pallet-size, stackable, 40 fit into a reefer). Produced using novel materials and highly scalable manufacturing processes, the RipeLocker container is the first solution that can be delivered cost effectively in mass volume.
RipeLocker has patents on both the container design and method of operation.
