Science not magic
Our RipeLocker containers offer a unique, patented system to manage the atmospheric pressure, humidity and gas composition (oxygen and CO2) 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, such as internal pressure, oxygen and CO2 levels, to optimize the longevity and freshness. Our system responds to changes in the storage or shipping environment, making automatic precise adjustments to prevent damage and reduce decay.
RipeLocker containers can withstand 15,000+ lbs. of outside forces and were inspired by NASA findings on the value of low pressure on preserving perishables.
We designed RipeLocker containers so that they can easily be deployed and used in the existing cold chain. 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.
