Innovative packaging film and trays for fruits and vegetables - Tests on postharvest quality of strawberry
biblio., graph., photo., tabl., anglais
In order to evaluate the effect of new packaging film and tray materials on the postharvest quality of strawberries, the CTIFL conducted experiments in a simulated post-harvest supply chain in 2019. Four films and twelve types of trays, all made of totally or partially bio-based materials, were tested on maintaining the quality of the strawberries as well as their robustness and resistance. The results show that films that are more water-permeable than plastic reduce the formation of condensation, while allowing the development of modified atmosphere conditions and potentially extending the shelf-life of strawberries on display. Some trays also showed good performance in terms of maintaining fruit quality as well as robustness compared to conventional PET materials. This article presents a summary of the most significant results.
