​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.

   CELERY

   Undamaged good quality celery, can be stored for around 10
   weeks with good temperature control at around 0ºC (32ºF) and
   high levels of humidity. Celery is ethylene sensitive, and will wilt
   quickly if exposed to low levels of humidity and high temperature.
   Celery can be pre-cooled by forced air cooling or hydro-cooling.
   Maintenance of air circulation around cartons containing celery is
   important to avoid overheating from respiration heat.

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


 
   Packaging Method:
   Celery can be packed into PEAKfresh carton liners that are folded closed at the top. Celery is also packed into

   individual sleeves made from PEAKfresh film that are sealed with a twist tie. Celery must be packed dry. For domestic
   and food service use, cut celery stalks will maintain freshness and crispness packed in 1 kg and 2kg sealed PEAKfresh
   bags. Celery is subject to chill damage at temperatures of-5ºC (3lºF).
 
   Storage Temperatures:
   0ºC (32ºF) 95% humidity, avoid chill damage.
