​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. 


   Cauliflower, that is free of any handling damage, and that has
   been pre-cooled quickly following harvest to temperatures below
   5ºC, can be stored successfully in PEAKfresh carton liners for three
   to four weeks. The market value of cauliflower is determined by its
   appearance and in particular the cleanliness of the white flower or
   curd. Keeping the curd clean is an important part of handling,
   particularly when a full cauliflower is trimmed of its protective leaves
   ready for sale. Cauliflower is also subject to freezing damage which
   results in browning of the curd and the appearance of soft rot
   bacteria. Temperature control is important in maintaining the storage
   life of the cauliflower. Cauliflower is very sensitive to the presence of
   ethylene gas.

   Recommended Post Harvest Temperatures
   0ºC (32ºF) above 95% humidity.

   Packaging Method:
   Bulk storage of cauliflower should be kept in slatted crates to allow maximum air flow. Cauliflower can be successfully
   wrapped individually in PEAKfresh bags. It is not necessary to use a carton liner when individual heads of cauliflower
   are wrapped. Bulk cauliflower flower that is wrapped in tissue paper can be packaged into aPEAKfresh carton liner and
   folded at the top, not sealed. Where cauliflower is being transported to areas where there is a likelihood of inadequate
   refrigeration, then PEAKfresh sheets should be used to line the bottom and top of the packaging carton and as a divider
   between two separate layers of cauliflower.
   Storage Temperatures:
   0ºC (32ºF) above 95% humidity.
