​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. 


   Mushrooms offered for bulk sales in supermarkets are normally
   2 to 3 days old when displayed. If they have been stored at 0ºC
   (32ºF) from harvest, they will have a display life of about two days.
   It is important not to spray mushrooms with produce area sprays
   so as to avoid excessive moisture build up. Exposure to dry air
   will quickly dehydrate mushrooms. Moist mushrooms packed into
   plastic bags usually become slimy and develop off odors. Fresh
   harvested mushrooms packaged into PEAKfresh at 0ºC (32ºF)
   will keep well for about 3 to 4 days if kept at 0ºC (32ºF). The
   possibilities of temperature changes and the level of moisture
   build up restrict any recommendation for mushrooms to be
   packaged into PEAKfresh bags at retail outlets. For growers,
   our recommendation is that a sheet of PEAKfresh film be placed
   across the top of an open box of mushrooms to maintain humidity.
   Storing mushrooms at home in a PEAKfresh bag can be extended
   by wrapping the mushrooms in some paper kitchen towel inside
   the PEAKfresh bag.
   Recommended Post Harvest Temperatures:
   0ºC (32ºF) temperature and 95% humidity.
   Packaging Method:
   As described above.

   Storage Temperatures:
   0ºV (32ºF) temperature and 95% humidity. Storage not to exceed 5 days.

   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.
