If you are a grower/packer, RipeLocker containers enable you to retain high quality, increase shelf-life and lengthen the seasonal availability of your fresh produce and flowers. They also enable you to ship via less-expensive methods, such as by ocean vs. air, which leads to significant cost savings for your company. In addition, with this new method of storing and shipping your fresh produce and flowers, you can extend your reach to the farther global locations that may offer an increased market size as well as higher margins.
Tested by some of the largest growers in the world, all RipeLocker container efficacy data is validated by third parties including the growers themselves and major agricultural universities. We’ve completed trials with several high-value commodities such as berries, pomegranates, cherries, papayas, fresh hops and flowers.
RipeLocker containers help shippers to reduce loss while shipping fresh produce and flowers. The containers suppress pathogen growth, resulting in significantly less decay. Because RipeLocker containers are pallet-sized and portable, they are easy to manage and can fit in many shipping configurations. The RipeLocker containers extend shelf-life during transit, so you can now reach much more distant markets via ocean and truck vs. more expensive air freight.
When fresh produce and flowers arrive via RipeLocker containers, quality will be much better than those delivered by other storing and shipping methods. RipeLocker containers also extend the seasonal availability of fresh produce and flowers, which not only means pleasing your retail customers, but the ability to charge higher mark-ups.
In addition, RipeLocker containers lengthen shelf life and therefore reduce food waste both at the retailer and the consumer’s home. RipeLocker containers enable bulk shipments, thereby reducing costly repacks at destination and potentially reducing overall costs of packaging.
The beauty of fresh produce stored and/or shipped via RipeLocker containers is that it is of the highest quality and taste, in addition to lasting longer in your home than produce shipped or stored via other methods. RipeLocker containers reduce the amount of produce you need to discard due to decay because they literally slow the decaying process during storage and shipment. Because RipeLocker containers help reduce food waste, less energy is needed to grow additional crops.
The use of RipeLocker containers also enable produce and flower growers to ship via ocean vs. air resulting in 44x less carbon emissions.
