​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.

  PARSNIPS

   Topped parsnips can be kept for up to six months at 0ºC.
   Only good quality, healthy roots should be stored. Parsnip roots
   that have been bruised or cut during harvesting should not be
   considered for long term storage. Poor quality roots decay
   quickly and produce surface browning or yellowing as a result
   of oxidation. The biggest storage problem is to avoid wilting of
   the roots. Untapped parsnips have a very short storage life. It is
   possible to store fresh harvested parsnips in PEAKfresh bin
   liners that include ventilation holes in their base.

   Recommended Post Harvest Temperatures
   0ºC (32ºF) and 98% -100% relative humidity.
 
   Packaging Method:
   Good quality parsnips that have been properly pre-cooled are packed dry into PEAKfresh carton liners folded closed 
   at the top. The carton should have Ventilation holes but not necessarily be waxed. They can be stored into 1kg and
   2kg bags for domestic and food service use. To avoid chill damage do not store parsnips below 1ºC (33ºF) for any
   length of time.
 
   Storage Temperatures:
   0ºC (32ºF) and 98% -100% relative humidity.
