Saving on Energy with Ethylene Management

Storing fruits and vegetables at low temperatures to extend storage time is standard practice in food supply chains. Low temperatures serve to delay senescence in non-climacteric fruits. However, refrigeration is energy intensive and there is a need to find an alternate method to store fresh produce to reduce the carbon footprint of food production. Reducing… Continue reading…

Building a ‘Kent’ Mango Firmness Model with NIR Spectroscopy

An increase in the import of mangos into Europe makes it necessary to find accurate and rapid methods of testing ripeness. Though subjective, firmness is one of the oldest and most intuitive means of judging fruit ripeness. Emerging work with NIR spectrometers can make this subjective process more objective and help in establishing the correct… Continue reading…
