About PEAKfresh Intelligent Film (MAP)
PEAKfresh is a low-density polyethylene film impregnated with a natural occurring mineral that significantly increases gas permeability, allowing ethylene and other damaging gases to be removed.
PEAKfresh's intelligent film is designed to extend the shelf life of produce and fresh flowers. When used with refrigeration at correct temperature levels, PEAKfresh will extend the life and freshness of your products.
Using PEAKfresh saves you money by extending the freshness and shelf life of produce and floral items, while minimizing waste. This allows for ground and sea transportation to become an alternative to costly air freight for long distance shipments.
The anti-fogging properties of PEAKfresh film reduces moisture formation to inhibit bacterial growth.
PEAKfresh products are certified by OMRI code: pfp-2278. This listing indicates that PEAKfresh products comply with the OMRI Policy and Standards Manual, which is based on the requirements of the USDA National Organic Program Rule (7 CFR Part 205).
PEAKfresh Film Breathes: Unlike ordinary plastic film, our intelligent film “breathes” allowing damaging gases produced by fruits, vegetables and flowers to escape as they ripen, while maintaining vitamin C levels.
PEAKfresh Removes Ethylene Gas: Most fruits, vegetables and flowers release ethylene gas after harvesting. Exposure to these gases accelerates aging and ultimate deterioration. PEAKfresh film removes ethylene gas to prolong the life and freshness of produce and floral products.
All PEAKfresh products are custom made to fit our customers' needs. We have standard stock items ready to ship immediately, or we can create product in custom sizes, vented or non-vented, clear or colored and branded to meet your marketing needs.
