controls the ripening process of fruit. 

FreshGuars EC: For the desired development of fruit.  



That the ripening process of fruit fits into the selling timeframe.  

Do you want to extend the freshness of your fruit for up to 13 days? 
Then rely on the freshness and quality preserving effect of McAirlaid’s FreshGuard technology. FreshGuard EC controls ethylene in the sales packaging, which accelerates the ripening process. And this gives you valuable time for marketing. 

FreshGuard EC prevents fruit from ripening too soon. 

Quality and appearance of food is improved. 

FreshGuard EC reduces food wastage. 

Take control of the quality and ripening process.  

McAirlaid‘s FreshGuard EC makes it simple. It works positively in a manifold way in MAP trays, disposable trays and flowpacks. It prevents the early ripening of fruit. It improves the quality and fresh appearance of foodstuffs. It minimises drying out and with this - loss of weight. And as it increases the shelf life of fruit, it significantly contributes to the reduction of food waste. Over the duration of almost two weeks, it increases the time window during which you can present fruit for sale in the best condition. 

Ethylene is the enemy of shelf life. 

As natural plant hormone it is responsible for plant growth, ageing and the accelerated ripening of many fruits and vegetables. Even small quantities of ethylene can cause a significant loss of quality and a reduction of storage on the shelf. This is commercially counterproductive and undesirable. 

Tested by the German Institute for Food Technology (Deutsches Institut für Lebensmitteltechnik e.V.) and judged as very good.   

Ethylene Management for long freshness

Measuring the concentration of ethylene in packaging found that the control package (red) had the highest concentration of ethylene, whilst the FreshGuard-EC package (blue) had the lowest ethylene concentration.
