​PEAKfresh is modified atmosphere packaging (MAP) made specifically for fruit and vegetables as well

as cut flowers and plants. With a natural mineral embedded in our products, we are able to modify the
composition of the air surrounding the packaged item in order to extend the initial fresh state of the
product. PEAKfresh has long been used by growers, shippers and retail chains to preserve the
freshness of produce during transit and storage. Most recently, NASA began using PEAKfresh to

extend the life of produce sent to and consumed by the astronauts at the International Space Station. 


   It has the highest respiration rate of any fruit or vegetable and has
   a very short post harvest life. Broccoli must be cooled to around
   0ºC immediately following harvest to protect the tight, compact
   flowers on the head. Broccoli that has been properly pre-cooled to
   0ºC can be packed successfully into a carton liner without the need
   to apply top ice. By using PEAKfresh there are savings in ice and
   the unnecessary use of expensive waxed boxes.

   Recommended Post Harvest Temperatures
   0ºC (32ºF) temperature and 95%humidity
   Packaging Method:
   Packed in individual bags or bulk packed into PEAKfresh carton

   liners. No ice needed. No waxed box needed. Broccoli with very
   tight and compact flowers can be stored up to four weeks using   
   PEAKfresh. Fold close liner at top before placing outer carton lid.
   Refrigeration is essential for transport and storage of broccoli.
   Must be packed dry without leaves. Trimming of butt cut and leaves
   must be done with knives treated with chlorine solution to remove
   bacteria. Bags used to pre-pack florets of broccoli must have
   additional 3-6mm holes in the bag gusset to increase ventilation.
   Storage Temperatures:
   0ºC (32ºF) temperature and 95% humidity.
   Important Please Read:
   All recommendations for the use of PEAKfresh products are given

   in good faith and based on proven field experience. Packaging
   method storage temperatures and humidity levels, transit and
   destination conditions are factors likely to affect the performance
   of PEAKfresh products and no liability for indirect or consequential
   damage can be accepted. We recommend that PEAKfresh products
   be trialed under local conditions before introduction to large scale
   commercial applications.
