​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. 

   There are two objectives in the packaging of cherries. The first is to
   maintain green stems and the second is to maintain a high degree
   of natural bloom on the surface of the fruit. There are a number of
   different types of boxes used in Australia for the packaging of
   cherries ranging from 5kg to 20kg in weight. Various boxes are also
   designed for retail presentation and include printed “cameo” opening
   for display.

   Recommended Post Harvest Temperatures
   It is essential that cherries be pre-cooled to around 0ºC (32ºF)

   immediately following harvest.
   Post Harvest Humidity 90-95%

   Packaging Method:
   We recommend that pre-cooled cherries be packaged using 

   PEAKfresh carton liners. It is important that the cherries be pre-
   cooled to around 0ºC (32ºF) before packaging. The top of the carton
   liner to be folded closed before the outer carton is applied. An
   alternative method of packing cherries is usingPEAKfresh sheets.
   Our recommended use of PEAKfresh sheet that is cut to fit the exact
   size of the box opening is to place one sheet in the bottom of the
   box, a further sheet in the middle of the box dividing the fruit into two
   layers, and a third sheet on the top of the box. Where a “cameo” box
   top is used, it is a very nice presentation to use two sheets of
   PEAKfresh overlapped at the center opening of the “cameo” which
   are pulled apart to provide an attractive green plastic surround on
   the edge of the “cameo” framing the stored cherries.This method of
   packaging using PEAKfresh maintains a high degree of humidity,
   avoiding moisture loss from the fruit and maintaining green stems.
   Cherries packed using this method have produced storage periods
   of in excess of six weeks. Otherwise, PEAKfresh carton liners are
   strongly recommended.
   Storage Temperatures:
   Around 0ºC (32ºF). As soon as cases of cherries are removed from

   cold storage, and particularly where a carton liner has been used,
   the carton liner should be opened at the top.
   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.
